Water was in good shape at first light and I managed to continue my losing streak even after putting on a new Owner hook this AM. ::)

Water colored up around 9:30 when I went for the usual coffee breakwith visibility down to a foot, looked like another clay slump from above. Also it was very windy all morning and still is.

How was it flossed was someone bb? Or was it in clear water and someone did the old rip and jerk. Sounds like the vedder is still going strong. Can't wait till may 1 when some meat donkey drives his jet boat half way up the river again.

I know how you feel chris. Same thing happened to me yesterday, two floats down for the fight, and the fight is over.
Oh well, i'd be more dejected if i wasn't getting the pulls.
Maybe it's the maple leaf on the float that's got you on this streak, mines just red.
I have also learned to pvr the canucks games, maybe you should try that with the leafs. 8-0, Ouch :'(
