I'm not much of a superstition-ist......
A little bit maybe...
I wear the same t shirt everytime I fish, I don't know why, but it helps.
I had it on on the OI when I first went out, on the SR during recent trips, many days and nights in this old green Chive t shirt.
I brought that shirt with me last week when old Wilkie and I few out to Wisconsin to fish for musky.
I had won an online raffle for a few days of guided fishing with Musky Country Outfitters. The raffle was set up to raise money for a guy and his wife who were trying to have a child, I would have donated regardless of the chance to win a trip like that.... but.... selfishly I was already planning.
Other than sprinting through the Philly airport with 10 mins to catch our connecting flight, the old man and I had fine traveling. We made it and had time to sit down and enjoy a "juicy lucy" at the airport.
We had read that if you are traveling through the twin cities you must get one of these cheese infused hamburgers. Bam.... it was fine !
We settled in to the "musky lab" our home away from home for the next few days. A mobile home style "tiny house", full kitchen and bath room, complete with a midget stripper loft with a ceiling height of 4'.
We drove north our first day in search of steelhead in a small river. No love (Still in the old T Shirt mind you)
The old man nymphing a likely holding spot near a discarded pumpkin.
The next few days we floated and hucked big flies for toothies. It was awesome.
Day three I changed my shirt, our last chance to land a fish in Wisco and I needed all the help I could get.
I laced on the new Solid Hookups T and we set out for our last float in the snow and rain.
Right place at the right time for a truly special fish. We floated the rest of the day in the driving rain and didn't see another swimmer. I think I'll be sporting the SH shirt more often on the water, I hope yours is bringing you luck as well.
