Re: A real angler

Well done, especially considering you were using a point and shoot. Erratic season ? That's putting it mildly as far as I'm concerned. I haven't got nearly into the the number and size of fish compared this time last year.

Re: New posted spot on Willow?

As everybody here has noticed, posted signs are more and more a problem. I was greeted this spring with a posted sign on one of my favorite Brookie spots.

Pearsall's Gossamar Silk Thread

Local NPR until the national political scene make me want to scream, Tune In app on the internet with world wide stations including the station fron anartica, as well as all manner of music files (a t...
