Your first thought is "What a great fishing hole." And then you go there, up the mountain, where the stream narrows and nobody seems to have ever fished a line. You pass bear dens - two, to be precise - and you pass time catching wild Brook Trout. You lose track of the day, the place. Then you realize your friends are far ahead, and you have no map. Water is running low. It's getting late.

And then, while swinging your leg over a rock, your knee meets the edge. You see red, and you realize, "I can't go on. I have to turn back." It's two hours down the mountain. You meet strangers on the road. They may help. They may not. You catch a ride to camp, and drink it off.

The next day, you are back up the mountain, bad leg and all. Why? because there is nothing better than a native Brook trout or a wild rainbow at the end of your 4 weight. That's why.
