To catch a predator Usmc fly fishing training today

Yup weíre gonna diversify , from the world of ultralight spinning to medium spinning fishing to fly fishing. I never really got into fly fishing but itís time to change at 53 years old. Our instructor is jay a friend Iíve known for at least 3 decades we have worked as teamsters steering wheel holders Preston 151 red star then roadway I left after the roadway yellow merger. Screw your pension relief I went to another freight ops paying full pension.

Ok Iím sorry rambling Iím bored my wife and mother in law headed out to shop for grandkids , boys hit their jobs at horse farm they get done 14:00 maybe 15:00. So Jay is coming to pick me up, I joke heís good friend father husband former marine kid battle of Hue city. So usmc vet is teaching fly fishing to us why The boys and dad love to fish and weíre out together regardless if we are on em catching or not , I saw a guy other week pulling bass out lake in canoe with fly set up.

It was mid day hot and we bagged fishing they were not biting on our spinning set up so the boys and dad put the kayaks in to stroll around the water and grounded zodiac until evening ,trout bass like to feed early morning and evenings. And in the midday heat when fish like to go deep cooler water this guy was cleaning house in middle of the Day sun was high he was catching bass on flies casting into the water lily patches and flooded trees.

So this will give us in our arsenal capabilities to keep on catching, we live near fabulous limestone streams for trout as well and this time year trout looking up so fly fishing we will be able to venture into summer trout instead of our ultralight spinning reels spring and fall hunts.

So jt is taking me to local fly shop this morning so we can gear up spend a little for quality the boys and dad at decent price. Then itís on will be unstoppable I love catching trout brownies natives , I love when you hook a rainbow and the sun hits it so beautiful. And always so careful keeping them in water I teach my boys donít try handle them always by the mouth, in holding their bodies that film they have to protect them from parasites catch and release.

A discussion with my son on hammer ons I don't think Grandma appreciates dads zepp guitar school

At 0600 in morning she grabbed her crossword and coffee and headed out too the patio. Come on nana itís not like weíre jamming Marshall stacks , quite the opposite weíre using 1 watt tube amps. So todayís lesson plan is zepp Iím gonna crawl, our one son was picking at it.

So dad had to get involved as in Grabbing our favorite herd member ok well dads favorite made in japan tokai Les Paul I said fellas I been in a longer relationship with this beautiful tone beast longer than your mom 35 years to be exact.

I remember the day we met in GIESSEN west Germany I hopped the train from KIRCH GOENS I had cash cuz my infantry batt we just pulled off a FTX field training exercise, we recovered our gear then like week later we bagged ass for back to back grafenwoer and then hohensfeltd. So I was loaded up with cash fellas and I went to pick her up at guitar store.

Yes dad we have heard this love story many times in how you and the Tokai met. I said boys these guitars sent Gibson into a oh shit the masses our gonna find out we been price gouging.

So the song opens from C then to G sharp the f shaped G sharp then slide down too the f shaped G to get that pinch hammer on. So we had to go the tapes like the NFL instant replay we had to go to the album well internet album vinyl is a dinosaur. so after the A to G to F is there a hammer on with the F cord , when the song is coming out chorus from the G to the F then back to intro C.

In that from the F to the C there is a hammer on B string. so ok I turn to my mother in law in dining room as we were all at table.

Teb - what do you hear I hear a hammer on in that F itís on B string.

Mother in law or AKA NANA -I think Iíll go to the patio for some peace and quiet itís much to early for this.

Teb - Why nana itís never to early for zeppelin

So as nana leaves and our sons smiling at me why because I just got my ass verbally kicked by a 78 year old Scottish woman. I smiled back at my boys and started playing ZZ Top party on the patio ,my one son reaches over and mutes the neck no dad.

Boog will not eat a carrot if offered in the house

Then feeding my wild herd of bunnies in lower pasture. I turned around and boog was eating the baby carrots off the ground.

I stood watching him thinking seriously dude.

Dad favorite saying WTF Memories of Appalachia our first bonafide Vietnamese sighting

A ramble my brother went home Iím wide awake had a lot of coffee,Anyway we wrapped up night fishing around 02:00. The boys were breaking their necks trying stay awake, we trailered the fv fishing vessel polish around 23:00 and built a fire and fished rest night from the shore. So we get back home and the boys head to bed and my brother and I hang on back porch shooting the breeze.

He hung around as he likes beer and his wife of 28 years like my wife of 33 years has fine tuned beerdar. Seriously before I quit drinking I could be in the basement my wife upstairs in kitchen, and I would pop a barley soda and Iíd hear what are you doing hon. Iíd reply nothing and think how does she know, to quote the holy grail Michael palin sheís a witch Iíd try to reason it out that is my conclusion on my dear wifeís beerdar.

So instead of going home and getting the look from his wife he hung with me, I wonít give him the look. My brother and I were a lot alike proud union workers veterans a 50 and 53 year old mentally immature adult children. Example we were talking about a prisoner snatch in kidnapping our youngest brother from his new marriage and family republican Jesus Fox News kkklan. I said dude heís blood we could roll over middle night kick in door duct tape his misses and snatch his ass and de program him with hours of Bernie Sanders videos. We could use the garage as a hide sight, I said we could pull it off we were both former infantry.

So we get to shooting the breeze and he brings up our father. The old man was hardcore seriously a United steel mill worker 31 years and retired. Unfortunately he passed like two years later car accident. Ok he lost leg his second tour in Vietnam two tours with 173rd he was gonna make army a career but his outlook on life fuck it it was just a leg Iím walking above ground.

This was probably I donít know 1976 maybe later our mom and church really were involved in the boat lift and several families were relocated too our little soon to be huge economic depression real estate the rust belt. Yup the steel mills were gonna get there asses kicked and the pit mines already were on the ropes. Regan cheese and getting drenched with golden shower trickledown economics was what maybe five years away.

So I remember as my bro this Vietnamese family the church is helping and our parents were really involved and all of a sudden our old man is speaking Vietnamese to these people wow my brother and I were blown away not sure how fluent he was. But we were thinking like WTF dad speaks Vietnamese ,so fast forward too 84 I get home from meps.

Old man - did you enlist

Me - yea I did

Old man - you scored really well on asvab did you get heavy equipment operator like you wanted.

Me - No I took infantry with guarantee airborne slot my attitude go big or donít go

Old man - immediately in my face from sitting at kitchen table WTF you dumb ass what did I tell you.

So my brother and I were laughing as he had the same exact WTF dumb ass speech like 18 months later when he came home and informed our parents he will be leaving for Parris Island itís cool Iím gonna be 0311. I asked did he wreak of pabst blue ribbon, he said you know I think he did. So weíre laughing our asses off this morning over what we find humorous in memories because weíre both easily amused especially by shiny objects.

I love it beats cold weíre going to the reservoir we have the zodiac in back of pickup. We been hitting it early morning and then evening when the large mouth start the fish feeding frenzy.

When We show up at lake it is a dance of oh yea a rhythm as we have done this many times in the black of pre dawn or nightfall and we drag zodiac out this lake is no outboard no electric trolling motors paddles only. Hook up electric pump as it is inflating tossing gear in water cooler of second breakfast of snacks for our two fifteen year old hollow legs.

We stopped for lunch a bar biker bar I used to hit when I drank but this bar has some of the best cheeseburgers and we sat at table. As we sat waiting on the waitress I said to our two 15 year olds you think those dudes voted trump sitting at bar I guarantee those turds did boys.

Then the one dude sitting at bar on his way bathroom recognized me and said , hey man how can you ride with all that on your rocker he was joking referring to my sons.

A ramble Field trip today checking out union trades with my boys

Rule around here after high school you will either go too college like youíre three older sisters. Or you will get into union trades like your uncles my one brother a union plumber steam fitter or our one son in law a union apprentice electrician in his third year. Union trades

Paid school by union and when you become journeyman you make great cash you have decent medical and pension.

I used too tell our daughter be like youíre mother get a higher education never depend on a man. And after I discharged in 87 my wife and I weíre married she was 19 and going to college and we had a infant daughter and her parents paid for her bachelors degree and I started working freight union dock.

And at 21 fresh out army I thought man I wanna do same for our child paid higher education no debt. And three daughters later my wife and I were able to do same for our girls, go in state university live at home and will cover you because we owe you. And plan is to do same for our two 15 year old sons. Do not be ass trash teamster truck driver like your father education or union trades.

So this year both guys got into industrial programs school has to offer. And next year they signed up for vo- tech program ,one is electrical the other son signed up carpenters program. I myself thought they both signed up for electrician program vo tech. Well we told you dad ok boys you know i have hearing aid.

So last week I asked my son in law if it was ok the journeyman teachers at IBEW ,give one son idea of what he will experience if he chooses this.

And then I picked up phone called carpenters union trade school introduced my self hey Iím 30+ teamster can you give son idea about program so today weíre hitting IBEW and Carpenter training centers. Keep them focused is my goal,I tell my boys if you choose to do these programs you can make application your senior year graduate high school.

Then go into trades apprenticeship and by the time youíre both 23 and graduate trades you both be knocking down good cash.
