Classic encounter #2,239

Perilously close Yankee: "So, whatcha usin'?"

Me: "Brains and muscles."

Yankee: "Hahaha, yeah. I've not seen many fish."

Me: "Probably because you're fishing right behind me." (at least 20ft away)

Yankee: "Well, I had one hit my Blue Wing Oliver."

Me: "Trout will do anything for you, dear, anything."

Yankee: "Say?"

Me: "Have a nice day."

Don't hassle me, I'm a local.

Yeah, how smart is your phone?

TVA.org has a new mobile app that, supposedly, let's you view the upcoming dam generation schedule for tailwaters. Well, I can't figure it out. The screen is a mess and the way the releases are listed makes no sense. On top of it all, not all the dams are listed. Maybe it's just my phone? Maybe it's the fact that I'm betraying all that's holy and right about fishing... taking a phone. True, there's not a lot of service around on the local waterways. But, why can't I just go? Figure things out when I get there.
