Successful Scouting

Great to be back on the river today! Joining me was my dad (Capt Tom) for some scouting before some up-coming trips. The rivers back-drop couldn't have been more spectacular--heavy snow from last nights storm bent limbs of trees and blanketed the already white forest...

Happy New Year

Swinging Leeches

Fresh back from a few days in the woods it was time to get back into the "swing" of things. Joining me was Scott of Rockford on this chilly November day. Angling pressure seemed to be back in check with only the normally anticipated boats...
