Fastest boat on the river.

As I passed a dude just drifting he asked me in an irritated tone:

“Know where you’re going?”

Yeah, to have lunch with those old guys over there...

I’ll row my ass off to sit and watch Bill orMark fish some sweet water. If you ever get to he opportunity I’d suggest doing the same.

That does sound nice.

Got a little tired of the pullout dictating the fishing spot. Plenty of Yin to all that yang.

Thanks Ben!

Great to have you join us again this year. Days on a perfect river with friends that never run out of beer just don't get old. We will do this again. Perhaps next time the wee one will join us and then we will have some great pics.

Ummm, yeah. What a week. Get rolling around 9(ends up being 9:30 at best), fish at a leisurely pace(because there are plenty of grabs to keep the day rolling) till the evening, enjoy some great food(crab cakes, smoked chops, steaks, pastas, caprese, bacon poppers) and drink with some great people(and 1 little doogie). Repeat 5 days in a row. Doesn't get much better than that.

Low clear waters kept things challenging. Long casts with proper turnover and fishing right away would be rewarded often. All else failed. Unlike the last couple years I was able to raise fish most days(except fucking Wednesday when the wind kicked up and my cast went to shit) highlighted by the first run of the last day when I found a couple fish across from Bill and Mark. Even got a couple comeback fish which is rare for me.

Keepin it simple
