Guides Day Out!!

Posted 10-01-2010 at 08:09 AM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

Well the guiding season has pretty much come to an end. So today the boss and I are off to hit the lower South Fork in search of monster browns. We are having a nice spell of indian summer here so the weather is going to be great. The fishing reports from the South Fork have been really good so we are looking forward to a great day!!
