Popping the Funk #49

Recommended Posts

Left work late. Didn’t have anything together or planned so I grabbed the 8wt and some Funk #49 poppers and.......wait a minute........that’s a sinking line.......where is the floating line......hey there’s a 5wt ready to go.......so I grabbed the 5wt and the Funk #49’s. 

Heading west things don’t look great.

I just kept going.

Wife called and said the AC wouldn’t work.

I just kept going.

Casting the Funk #49 with a 5wt wasn’t fun. But I got to workout my double hauling skills and made progress.

Not the species I was looking for but they still pulled pretty good on the string and were willing to participate.

With the coyotes singing in the distance the sun headed down.

And I packed up and headed east.

Nice report and pictures!

Just curious...anybody (no Googling) know the name ‘Funk #49’?

Good luck on the A/C!

Ding, ding, ding. 

Saw the Eagles at Sprint Center in late March, and they did some James Gang of course. I had that song stuck in my head for a month!

Thanks Ness!

To be honest I didn't know the name of the fly until I got home. If I had I would have been rocking that all the way down the road! Of course that would have pissed off the queen since that would be another iTunes purchase. I think she put my account on hold.

A/C was just a $10 capacitor. It's blowing cold again.
