I got housed.

No other way to say it, I got housed at the NJ Fly Fisherman of the Year One Fly contest.  I picked a jig head San Juan worm.  It didnt even get a look.  

In fairness to me, one of my beats, the stone wall, was an absolute bust.  There was about 8" of water in the beat, except one spot, which I repeatedly flogged.

The other beat I had, Poachers, had fish, they just werent buying what I was selling.

All excuses end with me though.  I represented Hacklebarney, and came up short.  I fished hard but didnt produce.  I am less of a man now that I let the chapter down.
