Pure evidence of why Fall is my favorite season to be scouring the country with a fly rod in my hand.. I had an epic evening with some of my closest friends, a few of my favorite beers and to top it off, I had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful 32" 13 lb. hen.. Fishing was incredible for all, and fish were measured in pounds rather than inches. I want to thank Taylor, Joe and Shea for help on the net, their photography skills and the good company as always..
Well It's done, just finished my self-built, self-designed custom raft trailer (aka.The San Juan Sled). Built mostly from parts on hand and a few materials begged off of job sites, it is equipped with full frontal rock guards, a strap winch and a roller bar on the rear. Expect to see this rig moving at a high rate of speed towards some of the best floatable rivers for quite some time.. I already have another trailer in the works for my Irish compadre, I think I might have to turn this in to a business... Need a custom trailer?
I finally stepped up and bought myself a Aire raft with a Salida Riverboat Works frame. I have spent every spare minute navigating the low flowing Arkansas River working on my technical rowing skills, and hoping to get enough miles logged to be able to take my clients out by spring.. Fishing has been great subsurface and all of my friends have been lacing fish right and left as I row them down the river, I think it's time for my friends to learn how to row!!
