I wonder if there are any trout down there?

April 4, 2016

I fly in my business. From Northern California to Central Oregon is a 9 hour drive or a 3 hour flight.  I choose the flight, as it saves time.

You see things from up above:  towns, valleys, trout streams!  There’s this one stream, out in the middle of nowhere.  I’ve flown over it a dozen times.  Each time I think to myself, “I wonder if there are any trout down there?” It looks very promising, and I just have a good feeling about it.  Fisherman’s hunch.

So now trout season has opened, and I’m packing my fly fishing gear.  I’ve found an airport about 7 miles from that stream.  It’s just a dirt strip but after landing my Switchblade I should be at the stream in about 15 minutes.  This time my business is trout fishing and my flying car is taking me there!
