River X

Guard Your River X Like A Dragon

It's not some crazy river in a far away country with giant fish and 16 weight fly rods required. Well, it could be. It depends who you are. River X is a state of mind, a happy place as most people would call it. River X is that river, lake, pond, or stream that you love most. The place that just makes you happy thinking about it, no matter what else is going on in your life. When you get there, it's the best thing in the world. You won't ever want to stop fishing, you'll forget about time and problems and everything else. And when you finally have to leave, well you'll dream about it until you get back. Thanks to Randy for explaining this to me, and giving me something to post about when I had nothing else to say. I went home and thought about it for awhile, and I know what my River X is (for now). But to anyone reading this, do you know yours? You don't have to know it yet, you may have not been yet. But we've all had this: You go to bed, you dream about a fishing place. A few weeks later, same place. It happens every now and then. And when you wake up and have to go to school or work or whatever, you're happy. Because you've already been fishing in your favorite hole. That's all it takes. So now think about it:

What's your River X?

And Garrison, I you're reading this, I tied a sweet fly with the hot pink Dubbing, I win the bet!!!


  1. I have one. But, it is constantly moving --> entirely person dependent.

  2. Nice. I have mine picked out. I hope you don't yet.

  3. Hmmm...there have been a few, but there is one in particular that I can go back to day after day. I am always willing to let it get unseated as my favorite though.

  4. e.m.b- good strategy, keep ahead of the crowd. By the way, what's the M in emb stand for?

    Cofisher- Everybody has one, it's just whether or not it changes. Mine definitely does. Nice profile picture change.

    JGR- Good to hear you're willing to let it change, and also good to hear there has been more than one already.
