Trout fishing on the Toccoa

We were on the Toccoa River this weekend in search of the elusive brook trout. There was a group with 2 guides up the river from us about 150 yds that kept watching us pulling in fish on our Zebco 33's, the 3 of us caught around 12 trout, some horny heads and a sucker. The guided group fishing with fly rods and outfitted with every piece of gear out of the Cabelas catalog caught 1, maybe 2 fish.

Needless to say they were pissed at us and tried to move in on where we were fishing from the bank, we left our line out in the river so they could not fish our spot... trust me they were trying

The whole funny part of this is while the guides were right in front of us in the river they were explaining to their paid clients the reason they were not catching any fish was because of a low pressure system I guess the barometric pressure was higher 20 feet down river where we were catching them

We were speaking to one of the guides and he mentioned he could guide us on a bear hunt, we were askign him at what range the bear would be and he didn't have a clue what we meant by "range" Shooting range? Cooking range? Home on the range? seriously no shit we had to explain what range meant

Then the funniest part...

I had a Georgia Outdoors News and the guide noticed it. He emntioned that he had an article in it and he would write his number on it to call him about the bear hunt. The motherfucker turned to the page his article was on and put his signature on it!!


BTW he's a member of TROUT UNLIMITED if anyone is interested in who I was talking to

I'm thinking about mentioning at a certain trout forum the story of him not having a clue what "range" meant and the fact that he told his clients the fish weren't biting because of the baromtric pressure even though we were pulling them to the bank faster than Bill Dance

...but I dont have to do that because they read Pirate4x4

What a toolbag.

Should've offered free lessons to his paying customers. Forced him to go home and cry himself to sleep in his Orvis pajamas, which may or may not be signed by Jon Voight.
