    Babler's Report

    100 to 1 eh? Think of all these misinformed customers paying $2.50 a pop thinking they are buying Amphipoda Gammarus (scuds) when they're really just fishing with Purinas Pelletonias (pellets). Once they find out . . . . they gonna be mad! Could be a class action suit. They're a litigious bunch, those fly-fishers are. 🤪

    Swan Creek Up Stream

    Bobby, Its probably been close to 25 years ago since I ran it in high water, so I'm probably not the best person to ask. I remember it being quite fast and big hay-stack rolling waves in several spots coming over the bow. Had to pull over several times and bail water and calm my nerves with lots of bourbon as it continued to rain and the water-level came up. Floaters guide book says it is a 10.5 fpm gradient for most of its floatable length, and class II-III in high water which is more than any of the rivers you mention, even the upper Jacks. "Reasonable water level" is a moving target on that creek as it can quickly change in a matter of hours, so I would say its probably not for novices after a "good rain". Summer time levels it will be super clear and I'm sure you'll have to do some dragging, but should be some good fishing and snorkeling.

    Swan Creek Up Stream

    Yeah, Swan Cave Rd is well above Garrison and Hwy 125, probably 5 or 6 miles at least. My floaters guide book lists Garrison as the most upstream practical put-in point and says it is "seldom navigable above this point", but that just makes me all the more curious. Would be fun to explore if the water level was right.

    I floated upper Swan years ago around Garrison. It was after a fairly heavy rain. Lots of fun, but not for the faint-hearted! Beautiful country indeed. Especially like the area around Bradleyville and Hercules Glades.

    Favorite movies - 5 only

    Love the Coen Bros. Buster Scruggs was really good -- a couple of the stories a bit dark though. The first one with Tim Blake Nelson is an instant classic. And prospector one with Tom Waits was really good too. The last one, with the banter in the stagecoach was pretty good, but fell flat with its ending.

    I feel like Santa Claus has died. Except SR was real. So many gifts he gave to everyone. So much kindness, and wisdom. Love that man, and will miss him dearly.

    Ahead of Flo making landfall, I understand that he and Melania jetted down to Mara-A-Lago to work on his paper towel toss. After Maria hit Puerto Rico . . . . there was some talk within the GOP about how poor his accuracy with the Bounty was.

    Nice! I would like tickets. Would even purchase stones (for throwing) at obscene vendor prices if not allowed to bring our own into the venue. Are you bringing vegetables, rotten eggs, fouled meat, dirty undies to throw? I got a Stormy Daniels Penthouse 2004 copy . . . can you get it signed for me? Hopefully that is allowed at least.
