1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Also fished Hot Creek and the Lower Owens for wild browns. And stopped in at the Lone Pine cowboy film museum.

    We stayed at the Arcularius Ranch (next to Alpers) on the Owens a couple of times. Fun fishing!

    Nice. I was just beside the HC Ranch for a few hours. Crazy beautiful place to fish. Definitely going back.

    gorgeous! i think the lower owens may be all that you can fish anymore - i know arcuarius was sold to a guy in viginia, and i heard that the alpers sold out to the same guy a couple fo years ago :-(

    We cant have either. The Netherlands is condemned by its location to eternal "meh" type weather. No real summers, no real winters, an overdose of rain and too many cloudy days.. I love snow, especially the type you get in the alps, but we only get the slush type. The same with sunny days, its either way too much, or not quite enough.

    Or maybe I'm typically dutch, and need to complain about everything...

    HC Ranch is dry only. Off the ranch is nymphs, dries - as long as it's single artficlal barbless. Even on the LO while there was a big mayfly hatch no fish were rising.

    There are no laws against wading, but most are against it as it is such a small creek. I did wade to cross then stuck to the bank.

    Are you fishing in the tristate area?

    Now that is sad. Is that a World Series riot? We didn't used to do that.

    Idiots.

    San Francisco didn't used to be a shitty place, though.

    Maybe they've finally had enough of the shitty Muni service?

    The next time I hear anyone talking shit about the riff-raff in Oakland, I'm going to pull up that picture.

    I remember on the eve of the Gulf War in 1991 a huge mob rioted down Market and broke basically every window

    Protesting for peace by breaking shit seems, at best, counterproductive. Unless you're actually breaking the machines of war, in which case, let me make room for your brass attachments.

    After all the other world series victories?

    Personally, I like a good riot now and then. Shows that people still have spunk.

    There was 2010 but also five 49er super bowls, no riots.
