Got a package in the mail from Northern D today...
Awhile back, D and his pals decided to give up beading for the next season. Being the Gentlemen that we are, we pointed and laughed for awhile, then politely extended a wager of honor. We bet D $20 that he would use beads again, and we named the date, too: about 6 days after the first drop, when the trout go from being giddy to wary to downright evasive. As a helpful service to prevent backsliding, we offered to keep his beads here at the Neil Creek Savings and Trust.
Amazingly enough, he sent us a box of beads. Good ones too, with some full-on custom doctoring, perfect for slingin' dirty-style in the salmon flows around here.
What...you think we would be silly enough to give away another man's secret colors?
