Thank God for understanding officers
I spent the morning throwing flies at very sluggish LMB. The cel phone rings and it's my buddy letting me know that the Pikerel were bitting pretty good on the other side of the island.
Without wasting too much time I left the bass to warm up and jumped into my car. As I traveled down the service road I see lights in my rear view mirror and realized I was being pulled over. Conversation went like this:
Officer: Do you realize your not wearing a seat belt sir?
Marco: Ummm, yes I do. I'm sorry officer.
Officer: long pause... Do you realize your wearing rubber pants?!?!?!?
Marco: They're waders officer, fish are bitting fish. I was in a bit of a rush.
Officer: Put on your seatbelt, good luck with the fish...
The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly.
