A Damn Fin Day

Some days are alright, maybe they are alright, alright, alright. Some days are shitty, and we mean got fired, car towed, kid suspended…shitty. But there are those fine days, those damn fine days that leave a scar in your memories. Those damn fine days that remind you why being human is pretty damn nice. Those…

Small Shank Redemption

The thought of being jailed for the rest of our lives is only followed by thoughts of never being able to touch a flowing river again. I could go without fresh fruit and veggies, an awesome burger, cold brews, driving, running, my own home, my own pool, my own shower, my own clothes and everything…

50 Shades of Spawn

        Friends, it’s time for us to pull the curtains back and let the magic happen for our friends under the surface. Spawning is upon us and well we all know what it feels like to either A) walk in on our parents or B) be walked in on. So, let’s just…

Bonnie and Clyde Bum

OHHHH YAAAAAA, we’re back friends! Sorry for the hiatus, we were stuck in hibernation mode and well our bosses were on us like a smallie on a top water. But, we are back and back for good. A lot has happened since last fall. So, instead of catching you up, we’re just gonna dive right…

Looking Back and Forward

WE never did post our last post about our money hole. Mostly due to the fear that it would be our last post about the money hole. And you know how superstitious we are. Our morning rituals of kissing our rods goodbye before we leave for the office, engineering room and retirement home (JK dad). Always…

Major Hiatus…

Whew, that was an adventure! Sorry friends, it’s been a while. You see, we were on a mission from God and we just got back. Ironically, we still have half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark out and we are wearing sunglasses. So, despite my Irish need to make up some elaborate story like we…

Sweet Dixie Sugar Creek

Every once and a while the Riverbums crave something sweet. Yes, tradition compels us to visit an ice cream shop after every fishing adventure. Why? Cause ice creams amazing and if you don’t like ice cream then you are a terrorist and anti-‘merica!   But, besides ice cream what really tickles our fancy is a…

Perseverance

If you could bottle a fisherman into a prescription and sell it in your pharmacy, the pharmacist would warn you of the side effects. Blood, sweat and tears. Yes, my friends. To be a fisherman is to be life threatening. Your doctor may tell you that things will never be the same when diagnosed as…

We’ve Been Wading

Fishing is not for the faint of heart. It is a roller coaster of wins and losses, ups and downs, stuck and unstuck, fish and no fish, hit and miss, and multiple “did you see that”. You walk into that river with the highest of hopes only to be tempted, tormented, and teased beyond relief…
