Finally sucked it up and went to a creek i have been looking at for a few years. Took my fitness freak little cousin with me. Stupidity loves company... The hike out was ungodly brutal. Rhodo, briars and more rhodo. Finally found a bear trail (literately, we could see the paw prints clearly) and made it to the ridge top. 7 miles round trip, 3,500 feet elevation gained - I was exhausted. But the fish were worth it. 6 specks over 9" were caught and probably 60 fish between the 2 of us. Crazy thing is we only caught 1 dink all day.

He is learning fast. Ask good questions, listens and watches. Very proud of him. On the way home fishjunky ambushed me via multiple voicemails and text messages. The boy is flat ninja with a cell phone. Got the permission slip signed by Mrs. lostnwilderness and we headed out Sunday afternoon to Davidson River. Lets just say, we had a GOOD day...

By the way, what were they hitting?
Everything we threw ;)

Nah seriously though, you should come up in the hills fishing with us sometime. If it is native fish you want, and you are ok riding around with a burlap bag (triple layered) over your head (dbeam can attest), I can arrange your acquaintance with our native brethren :) Native fish don't much care about pattern. It is more a question of your blue heron ninja stalking skills, ability to make precise cast in modified (jungle) conditions on the first try and have a drag free drift. You do that, then native fish are a piece of cake.*

*this message excludes native brown trout. They are ba______ a_______ that have severe emotional and sociological issues. (read as they are getting the best of me right now...)
