The Filthiest Fish

25 Jan

I have debased myself in various ways over the years but this weekend I reached a new low.  I spent the weekend with some college friends on some private NC water.  Fishing was not the reason for the trip but my buddies who had never fished wanted to learn a little.  Unfortunately a lack of waders and boots tied them to the shore…of the kids pond.  My friend Joe caught  his first trout on the fly when a 20″ Pond Rainbow inhaled his black Circus Peanut.  There was a picture taken but I will not be sharing it, so as to protect those involved.  I am off to take a very hot shower and scrub myself with steel wool until the stench of my shame is no longer palpable when I walk into a room.

    That smell was there way before this trip. A bath in tomato paste may do the trick.

      I don’t like baths…for any reason

    hey look at it this way – you now have introduced some friends to the sport of fly fishing – unless they were too drunk to remember, then try bleach to remove the stench, it may work better than steel wool.

      no, the drinking hadn’t begun in earnest until after the beast was slayed, and the steel wool adds the component of pain. I always find pain to be an important part of self-flagellation.

    cover yourself in burnt motor oil for 3 hours-told a buddy this in college as a cure for buster de crab, and, well, i haven’t heard from him in years……..

      What the hell is buster de crab chuckles. Is that a disease from the 1920’s that I am not familiar with. If so I think I had a case sophomore year in college after a quick trip Mexico way.
