Ladys? Flyfishing in Grand Lake



Sometimes living in Grand Lake takes some creativity to accomplish a goal. Take for instance a time many years ago when the Grand Lake Metropolitan Recreation District offered flyfishing lessons for women. Well there were several men who wanted to learn to flyfish but were told there were no classes for men. No problem; with the help of the theatre's costume department and several 'toddies', DW, JD, Aligator Al and myself dressed ourselves for a fine day of fishing with our unsuspecting instructor...'Ranger Sam'. We showed up just a few minutes late and while Sam was busy getting the 'real' ladys ready, we snuck up and surprised the hell out of him. After a long visit with uncontrolable laughter and the threat of some kind of 'sex test', we retreated to the security of our favorite local tavern and swore ourselves to secrecy regarding the whole affair. I believe the statute of limitations has long past and so I have decided to break the silence and report the episode here in my Blog. So remember; living in a small town with little oxygen and too much alcohol sometimes takes a bit of creativity to survive!

To paraphrase an old joke, you guys weren't really there for the fishing were you?

Sam is a very lucky man to have had such lovely visitors to the class. I remember hearing this story told many times and it still makes me laugh!!!
