When In Doubt.....

Anyone interested in a rain dance? I looked it up and found a few interesting, and very entertaining rain rituals...but I think we all employed a few other tactics to combat the conditions of late. All things considered, It has been a "technical" few days on the water, but the challenge has made the victories sweet....

Joe Jr. & Joe Sr. had a day to remember...

Locating the willing takers meant a lot of walking, persistence, and communication with the entire staff of guides. The rigging became seemingly more critical than usual, resorting to large hoppers for indicators, and size 16's in some instances for the dropper.

Head Guide Patrick Robinson made a nice scoop on this PA hen...

Hans is all smiles and then some on this thick brute

Chip was lovin' this pretty lady

Conditions have been less than ideal, but what is new. When in doubt....get out the small stuff and enjoy some fall chrome. Give us a shout if your feeling the urge, the calendar still has a few open dates.

A sincere thanks to all the Veterans for your faithful service to this still-great nation!

Cheers to bent rods!
