Camp Cherokee, Thanksgiving, and Lefty Kreh

Two weeks ago I did a wilderness survival camp out where I had to build my own shelter and spend the night in it as well as cook your own food and start a fire with a flint striker. I did a little fishing and caught a few bass as well as foul hooking a 30lb grass carp on a red-eye shad that shook itself off.
Yes I really did have to sleep under that. It sucked! I got bitten by every known bug indigenous to the area. 
Biggest bass of the trip.

For Thanksgiving weekend we always head up to Washington DC to my grandmothers house in Alexandria VA. Its not really a fishing trip but I did catch a few creek chub, a bass, and a pumpkinseed in the creek across the street from her house.

For school I have to do a project on an autobiography of our choice. I decided who better to do it on than Lefty Kreh. So I bought his book My Life Was This Big on my kindle. Then I remembered he was actually in town this weekend signing book down at Tailwaters Fly shop and I decided to meet the Legend for myself. I stood in the line without anything to sign but told him I bought an eBook of his and he told me a story of a year so ago where he was stranded in an airport for 7hour. The first thing he did when he got home was buy a kindle and said he doesn't go anywhere without it now. I ended up also getting a picture with him too.

  1. Nice fish pics, Marty, but your picture with Lefty is really great, and remember a picture is worth a thousand words; no authentication needed! Sorry about the camp and bugs. Hope your food was good.
