Yeah, that was Ed's (your illustrious Skagit guide) if I remember correctly. And with luck like yours it's easy to remain an Optimist! I'm gonna get you a T-Shirt with I LOVE BEN HOWARD printed on the back and a pic of a big bright steelie on the front!
And yeah, thanks for the Sandy report. =8^o
I just got the pics back from our epic float and am remembering the majestic jungle-like canopy of trees over the Sandy and some of the great water we fished that day. Gotta do it again soon!
