Hadn't been run in over two years.
Two bridge's between here and Douglas Lake out.
Two detours through the TN country side.
Lost key. (before my dad died likely)
No internet at the lake to search for key.
Calling friends in NC to Google boat places.
Driving from Dandridge to Morristown.
Boat place didn't have a key in stock.
Get to boat place and they found the last key for that model behind a box on the shelf.
Fuel system leaking.
Fixed fuel system.
All this pretty much solo. I can do stuff on my own :)

Caught a lot of fish. Mostly bluegill on poppers, bully's, and buggers. Caught some bass on Bullys. I grew a little and pushed a wall out of my mental way. Had fun.

Glad to see you're throwing off the funk. Looks like a good time. Maybe you can make it to fall PFF.

Good stuff there.
And pretty fair bluegill for sure. How deep was the water where you caught the gills?
A solo trip is good occasionally. :D

It was a fun and liberating trip.

JT I was fishing cliff with notches and shallow pockets. I was throwing my version of a Betts style popping bug #10. I circle and fished the same cliff again with a Bluegill Bully under a small round strike indicator. Probably 3 1/2 to the fly. Settle and strip. They seem to fancy that a lot. Thank you for teaching me to tie that one :)
