I was going to ask the same question.

I'm dying to get out there, was going to go last week, but got a bit of the old bronchitis.

Also, those brookies look a bit on the thin side. You could help out the population by keeping a couple, if you're into that.
Minnesota. North of 90... East of 35 :P

Actually none of them I'd say were skinny.

I'd keep but that doesn't start til Saturday.

This sounds like a stream I fished last summer with a friend. He nearly blindfolded me before taking me to it as he was afraid I would tell others where it is. It was heaven with a dry fly.

Grouplove - Itchin on a Photograph [Official Video] - YouTube
This band would have much better music videos if they focused the camera more on their keyboardist and didn't play any music.
