Ducky Finally Gets A new Home;

Posted 10-02-2016 at 03:11 PM by Hardyreels

Way back in the 1980's the fellow who owned Marsh Hill Grocery & General Store gave me a Wood Duck. His intention was that I would use the flank feathers for tying flies. When I unwrapped the duck I was so taken by the beauty of it that I ask a friend who was a taxidermist to preserve it for me and he did. That duck hung in my home in Cogan Station PA. - Newnan GA. - Portsmouth VA. - back to PA and through 5 more homes there - on to Colorado Springs and finally this past spring I went back to...

A Mystery Solved and A New Friend

Sometimes I don't know where to start a story and this time I'll just pick a spot and hope it all ties together.

It's been about 4 or 5 weeks now but I was on a moose hunt for a week. I was the guy who put up the came and picked its location and we were on a river. It seems that you're always on a river here and this was just another camp on another island. It was on the next to the last day that we had returned to camp for a late lunch and had no clue where we would spend the evening....

Salvaged This;

While John Page was here we took a trip to the cabin, the trip out was fraught with difficulty but we made it safely. Some mechanical problems delayed our departing at a reasonable time and thick fog and the coming of darkness made the last 40 miles of the boat trip a little tense.

When we arrived at Hewitt Lake we found the water high, I don't mean a little high I mean higher than its ever been while I was actually there. My 4 Wheeler access road to the shoreline was under water...
