YOU MUST APPEAR IN COURT! LOL!
James Anderson is a featured angler in my Spring Creek film. James and I have also worked together on Canvasfish, my recent documentary on artist Derek DeYoung. Our latest collaboration is the sound track for my new film "Thai One On". My boy James recently e-mailed me an update on his steelhead trip and it went a little something like this:
Yeah, the cop was REALLY upset. Apparently some jack ass I passed called me in so he was looking for me. "Is there a reason you were going ONE HUNDRED AND SIX mph?!?!?"
"Ah, I was trying to get to the coast tonight to go steelheading..."
"Is it worth GOING TO JAIL!?"
After the license and registration...
"slow it DOWN, that is RIDICULOUS. You have to go to court for this much, you're lucky I don't write you up for a wreckless. Do you have any other questions?"
"No sir, just wanted to say I'm sorry again and I will slow it down..."
I had a lady judge who turned out to be very cool - she goes salmon fishing in Alaska every year and said one day she was so excited she didn't eat for 10 hours. I still got the maximum fine - $100, which I felt a heck of a lot better than going to the clink... Still that's 5 days of shuttle money down the drain...
Be the Judge yourself, was it worth it? JA is MONEY!
