GUARDIAN Summer Musings Take 1

Apologies to regular readers for not getting new material posted and rapid posting of your insightful comments. The GUARDIAN editor has been working at the “day job” shooting images in Eastern Idaho and Yellowstone.

I intend to offer up some little tidbits of information and share some photos in the next few days.
For starters this picture was made at Last Chance on Henrys Fork of the Snake River at Island Park–that is MECCA to flyfishers. People come from around the globe for the chance to offer wily trout a mouth full of deer hair and feathers.

The area–once a truly wild destination and playground of the eastern elite–is now a playground for Generation X, Boomers, or whatever they call people with more money and time than common sense.

Feel free to ad your own caption suggestions. For bait we offer: “FISH TALK” and
“Stall him so I can get out of the water. I don’t have a license.”

    Hello? Skipper’s? I’ve have the all-you-can eat fish special.

  4. “Stall him so I can get out of the water. I don’t have a license.” just doesn’t work for me since he doesn’t have a pole and isn’t technicaly fishing. He looks more like a guide saying “honey I’ll be home as soon as these idiots get their limit, wait a minute you’re wearing what?”

    Can you hear me now?

  6. Ericn–
    Your powers of observation need a tune up. The phone has taken up a hand while the dialing hand has a flyrod tucked under the armpit…the line is crossing his thighs.

  7. “**cough cough** Yeah…Im feeling really lousy **hack Hack** dont think I can make it in to work today *groan* so sorry. ”

  8. You guys are missing the point.

    Obviously this young man is closing a deal, or purchasing stock or something business-related. It’s the new world order: no longer do you have to be in a stuffy office in a crowded city to do business. Technology has made it possible for the rich and/or elite to never be out of touch – they can now afford to live in these once wild areas, make them even more exclusive than they already are, and still get the job done.

    Not to mention the guy misses the entire point of being out in the “wild” fishing anyway.


  9. Hello, Flying Pie?? How far will you deliver?

  10. On the other hand… why be in the office when the technology allows you to be fishing? Admittedly fishing without worry about work would be better, but this is better than nothing at all. Further.. you don’t have to be rich/elite to have a cell phone and fly fish.

  11. I just assume he will drop the cell phone before he gets out of the river. Heh, heh.

  12. “Rush, You’re just going to have to wait, I can’t call in that type of prescription, go have a drink”

  13. It isn’t a cell phone. He’s shaving.
