Snoqualmie river flood 

There was hope of trying out a new BIIx on local steel.  We're gonna have to wait.  The pic above shows the mainstem of the Snoqualmie River about 7 miles from my house.

The back up plan would normally be the Skykomish - which has shit the bed just as nicely.

Our weekend in Baja with the A-Team

What do you do on a snowy Northwest Sunday with little to no energy or cerebral power to crank out insightful Chum content?  You surf stupid sites and find one with a program that auto-generates an A-Team episode.  It's kinda like Madlibs.  Only for retards.


Make your own A-Team Episode

"In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team."

A-Team Episode Generator

Story by Rathbun

The A-Team is hired by Bennett to go to Baja to rescue Rathbun's mother from K.C. Walsh, who is intent on taking control of Baja. B.A. is afraid to fly ,so they drug him and Murdock flies them to Baja.
They arrive and go into the nearest Moldy Chum where they get into a fight after asking about the clients mother.
They are overwhelmed by twenty or thirty really big villagers. The little village in Baja is living in terror of K.C. Walsh and the accompanying band of thugs.
Face convinces the villagers to let them go by saying - Get some bitch
Hannibal comes up with a plan. He has B.A. turn a spey rod and a big roto hammer into a deadly weapon .
Hanibal pretends to be governer of alaska, but K.C. Walsh catches on and tries to power tea-bag Hanibal. Murdoch rescues Hanibal at the last second.
Then Hannibal goes in their front door in their deadly float tube . They manage to defeat all the thugs. K.C. Walsh holds a gun to Faces head and escapes using the deadly float tube as transportation.
The A-Team pursues them. Murdoch shoots out the side window. When K.C. Walsh slows down to take a turn Rathbun's mother jumps out and is helped up by Face.
Hanibal throws explosives, causing the deadly float tube to crash and flip over . K.C. Walsh climbs out unharmed. Hanibal says I love it when a plan comes together.
The A-Team leaves K.C. Walsh tied up for the authorities. In the little village in Baja there is much rejoicing. In order to get B.A. to fly home though the A-Team has to drug him again.

Sinkhole Streamer Fishing


Last Thursday, a 40 foot sinkhole formed in the center Interstate 25 just north of the Interstate 70 interchange in Denver. The sinkhole was estimated to16 feet deep, and happened just in time for rush hour. 
Nobody was injured, and Lisa Rattenni decided to make the best of it by taking this huge rainbow. Like we always say, when life gives you lemons, make gin and tonics!

We make no judgment on the alleged theft in this link.  We know Dennis, like Dennis, and some of us have fished with Dennis.  He undoubtably knows his stuff and has a good attitude.  We post this for pure entertainment value and to highlight how serious fly fishing can get.  And, you know our thoughts on that.

It's no Katrina, but it hit us pretty hard up here.  The Chum team is all good, but powerless.  Post count may be a bit light for a day or so.

Some have blamed this surge on airmass conflicts.  I choose to beleive it was the soul sucking last breath of my Seahawks as they were swept by the 49rs.  LINK

The day I Was Hooked


After trying to organize the chaotic mess that is the picture folder on my laptop, I came across this gem. I guess you can call it the exact moment I was literally hooked on fly fishing.

Breaking Down Barriers with Borat


With Felt Soul Media's Running Down the Man slated to release in 07, we've nominated Borat to make a cameo appearance.  Coincidentally, a recent Borat press conference can be heard here.  If you find it offensive, disturbing, or a waste of time, then good on us.  We've done our job.  If you have no idea of what we speak, then don't worry.  You're probably just a normal human being.
