Riviera Paradise Stevie Ray Vaughn
Riviera translates as Coast. While we do not live on the coast we do reside on the banks of Mother Mo. So this tune has always had a place in my heart and it is associated with y early trout bum years here before SOL settled here.
I used cue the cassette tape in my crappy
sweet Sanyo and turn it up.
I think that was my nicest, or only, music source for some time. Also a time when I owned 4 pairs of footwear. Teva’s, Sorels, wading boots, and ski boots. Kinda all you need. And a time when when everything I owned I could stuff in my Subaru. Mostly stuffed with fly rods and skis.
So enjoy Riviera Paradise on this Sunday. Seahawks are losing, Mariners are losing, I writing this and the fishing report for tomorrow. And gonna get out the Trout Spey quiver for the next 3 months. Time to put that kit in the mix…
