Six hours driving roundtrip for about the same amount of time on the water. These short winter days make the available time in the day go by quick for sure. The morning started out cold and overcast but once the sun made it's appearance it turned out to be a beautiful winter day.
Found a few fish , got to enjoy the beauty of an Ozark stream and never saw another soul on the river all day. I love winter floats.
As far as fishing , the usual suspects were out in full force , with missing fins and scarred up noses as battle scars to prove they were from the "other side of the tracks". We managed to find a few of the more respectable citizens hanging with the tough crowd though , there's always gotta be one. All in all not a bad way to spend a winter day in these parts.
Some driving music to kick the day off..
