Brian you shnauzer! Looks like I'll be etching a Wheatley soon
This would be a hard time for me to stay focused if I were still living out there... the re-opening of the season was always good for several morning digressions from chores to enjoy the 4:20 am arrivals of light on the river. I enjoyed success with a variety of techniques for chromer summer fish (just saying that quickens my heart rate)... but that short line muddler thing in the rapids is such a kick!
Look forward to hearing more reports
