Charlie had a good day on the river Tuesday but as we all found out, our time on this earth is precious and we all should learn to appreciate our time here. Charlie just wasn't right all day he later told me. We had a great time on the river and he was kind for giving me the BRFF discount to stay at his Inn in Sulphur. Those who want to do an overnight, must take Charlie's kind offer to stay at his place. We went to a great dinner at Roma Italia in Sulphur and we parted ways until coffee in the morning. As most of now know, Charlie had a mild heart attack after dinner that night. He is doing well and resting after being flown to OKC Heart Hospital Tuesday night. Thanks again Sheri for emailing me the next morning so I could share this with our forum members for thoughts and prayers. Good luck Charlie, get to feeling better and God Speed my friend.
I headed to the C&R Wednesday and the fishing was just off the charts. Fish were eating midge larvae early in the slack water with a red larvae I tie doing most of the damage. Around 11am, this hits stopped and I tied on a mayfly rig with a olive hare's ear with a soft hackle dropper picking up fish and gray foam wing emergers taking fish as well. Here is a beauty from one of the side channels in the C&R and a cool photo of the area.
All in all another great day and a half on the Blue. This trip was outstanding for fishing and friendshp. Lots of big fish this go round and another chance to fish with a good friend. The Good Lord blessed Charlie and I this week and thank goodness we will have a chance to fish again together hopefully soon. One last pic of a new friend from the water of the Blue as well. This piggy was a pleasure to find in my net.
Good fishing everyone and make sure to spend time with friends and family in the great outdoors.
