Diving into unknown waters can sometime negate the ability to swim.

True, if it were Mather Gorge I'd acknowledge the point in this case but the tidal Potomac doesn't really hold any special dangers unless you impale yourself on a metal spike sticking out of a sunken barge.  The Mount Vernon area doesn't really hold any nasties to my knowledge.  I think he forgot he didn't know how to swim.  Kind of a weak rescue attempt too.

It read like a CF event from all quarters.

I was on the escalator the other day headin' to the Park.    A guy in front of me had a tee shirt on with "The Periodic Table of Lures and Flies" on the back.      I thought about you and bluestreak   ....   yunz were the only fishermen that came to mind.   In fact, I said in a pretty loud voice  ....  "bluestreak".     Didn't turn around.    Figured he didn't wanna acknowledge me or it wasn't bluestreak.     :)

Bluestreak fishes?

I'm considering heading down to Mallows Bay Sunday.  Ought to be some barnacle crusted bass out in the wrecks, and some snakehead moms guarding their nests atop the grass beds in the back.

First game I ever attended with the "gang" was with blue911.     He sent me my ticket so I met him at the Park.    I had no idea what he looked like.    So I'm sittin' there as people come by  ...  "Are you blue?"     "Are you blue?"    I used his given name as well and no one answered to that either.

We know what you look like though.    We'll leave ya standin' on the Plaza by the Loft doin' your call outs.

haha I actually remember a pic of you so I'd probably be able to pick you out of the crowd, and VaRK and Mattionals I've already met but yea that leaves a bunch I'll be wondering to myself "Is that..."  :rofl:

Yes. You are correct. But I haven’t gone in a while.  Long while.

for those of you into trout fishing, Virginia Trout Heritage day is April 7, 2018.  There will be around a dozen stocked rivers and ponds in various locations around the state.  Last year's list is here:  https://www.dgif.virginia.gov/fishing/trout/trout-heritage-day/

We've run scouting events at Graves Mountain Lodge near Culpepper in years past.
