Re: Rio Gold coiling??

Thanks for the replies and sorry for the delay in responding, but I've been fishing.

Rio Gold coiling??

Re: So, how was the Missouri trout opener?

Due to the weather forecast, I decided not to go this year, but have been probably 20 out of the past 30 years. Opening day for me is more for the event itself than to catch fish. It's a great...
