Read the header and had to do a huge laugh!! A good laugh as it took me back many years to a golf course.
On Holiday and (ex wife) Joan and I have first tee time on a course in White Fish Montana (think I got that right). Cook and one other person .. he turns out to be the owner of the place.
Chat, ate breakfast together, 'why such an early tee time?' because we're both really bad and don't want to hold up play.'
Talk fishing over breakfast, 'Want to fish here?'
'Say what????' All the water haz's were stocked with rainbows for bug control (miskits). 'Just stay off the fairways, late in the afternoon/early evening quite a few of the players have had too much to drink.' C&R, but 3-6 pound trout on a 5wt, BONKERS!! Total BONKERS.
Vacation plan was to be there for a couple of days, extended to five and took fellow and 'sig-other' to dinner a couple of nights. Worth every penny, every penny. Corresponded for years until he passed away. Bad part was I found out too late to go to the funeral.
Heck of a guy in every respect of the term.
