For five years now I've been fishing with Luc, in that time I've learned a lot from him. It may sound like I'm kissing his ass but he could be one of the best fishermen I've met. So one thing I've learned is whenever I'm struggling the best thing to do is do whatever Luc is doing.

Woke up early and miscalculated the driving time. We wanted to be set up just before sunrise. We were going to miss that window.

Weather reports indicated a serious storm coming in with winds up to 29mph. With such conditions, fly fishing was going to be next to impossible. The debate was to hit up the river or the lake. The lake fishes well in nasty conditions but, my thinking was with 29mph winds whats the point? You won't be able to cast. On top of that we didn't come prepared. Wrong rod, lines, indicators, and no ladders. Of course any decisions we made would likely be the wrong one. We didn't bother setting the alarm and when we woke we took our time before heading into town to get some intel from sporting goods stores.
We made our rounds to every shop we could think of: Sierra Trading Post, Sportsman's Warehouse, and Scheel's. It was after lunch and we debating even bothering if we should even be fishing this day. Perhaps this would simply be a recon trip of the river but after think about it if we were on the water we'd want to fish so he bought our Nevada licenses. We got some info and decided to fish the river in hopes of finding some shelter from the wind. I can say about the people in Reno, they are open with information unlike California where anglers, fly shops guard their fishing spots like its their daughter's virginity. I guess with this many anglers it maybe wise. Reno on the otherhand it seemed even random people overhearing us would give use such useful information including driving directions. It was quite a shock to the system.

For months now I've tried to finish this tribute to Kaiser. Overwhelmed and not sure exactly what I wanted to add and how I wanted to edited it, I started and deleted more than a few attempts. Then I just held off on completing it out of frustration. Last night I realized today would have been his birthday and decided I would complete it for this day. Not sure if this really how I wanted it to turn out but this is what I put together. Kaiser would have been 10 today.
