WISH I WERE THERE!!!
Sounds like the Macallan is flowing on the shores of the Sky this morning. We're getting snow, cold, and a thick hanging gray sky right now. It seems to have been colder this winter in the PNW; but when those crocuses start pushing that rich volcanic soil up around February in the cascade valleys I was always reminded of how generous the weather is to the fisherman in Western WA.
I never did get to apologize for our inability to hook up on your visit. Timing was such that we were all paying for the wild season that had really ended prior. I look forward to meeting when I come back out, when you are able to get back out here - or better yet BOTH!
Wishing you all shoulder-dislocating pulls from chrome 40 inch winter beast bucks,
