When I last posted on Sunday the fire was 203 square miles. This morning its 280 square miles, BUT where it was 7% contained, it's now 20% contained. There are still 4500 structures threatened and 23 destroyed. There are 3700 firefighters on the line with a current cost of 44 Million dollars.
I headed out of the house at 0800 and this is what it looked like driving down the road to Highway 88.
Auditorium in Los Angeles during Friday Night boxing. Really, really smoky.
I stopped at the bridge on a road and you're going to love this, called Hells Delight Road. Now this road has special meaning for my wife and I. It was off this road we camped together for the first time. At daybreak the dirt bikes started and it sure was Hells Delight.
Parked on the side of the bridge and wadered up, strapped my oxygen tank on my back, got the Tenkara rod rigged, and my fly rod rigged. I was headed upstream.

In the picture below, on the left is a fly fisherman's net. Needs a little cleaning up and then I'm going to donate it to the fly club raffle. Next to it is a Husky wood saw. That will also be donated to the raffle. The long blue bag is a tent peg bag. On the right is a bag of Chinet Paper Plates, 225 count and never been opened. Still has the factory twist on the twist tie. Geezers know this kind of stuff. Much more stuff and I'm going to have to start taking a wheelbarrow with me.
Well, Mark, I have to give you solid handshake on this one. Very admirable that you took the opportunity to get on the stream with conditions as difficult as it appears. Nice Tenkara fish, too!ReplyDelete
Nice "leftover" haul, too.
Those rainbows are my style of fish.
Nice going on all of the catch...the fish and the stuff.ReplyDelete
Good job on the trout! BTW, i call dibs on the next trout net you find! hahaReplyDelete
