Time for an update here, this was taken last August. I guess I was looking pretty focused while I was whisking forum members 'fysh and Mrs. Fysh' along with Nancy & Boss up the river.

There are many a gravel bar that you gotta be avoiding and once you get up to 25 or more miles an hour things come at you quick.

Hi Paul,

There are a whole bunch of pictures on the blog I keep here. Fysh did better than the rest of us. You'll have to go to page 3 to find the story.

This link should get you there; The North American Fly Fishing Forum - Hardyreels

This is a three part entry because the blog only allows 10 images and so much text per entry. I've figured out how to post multiple part stories there so I can put up a bunch of pictures and info.

Let me know if you have any trouble accessing the pages.

Ard

Thanks Ard, enjoyed the whole report and all the excellent photos. Looks like you guys are enjoying a nice life.
Interesting that FYSH whipped the "home team"!

PIX of Lights brought back many memories from my travels through Northern latitudes.

OK. Time for an update. At least a shot of me on the water fishing instead of me and my best catch (that'd be the missus).

Just got back from my little vacation down south, to norther Arkansas, since the weather here has been crappy most of this year, have not been going to the track. Arkansas allows me to have a little fun and use up my tires.

Here's a picture from one of the gas stations in the middle of no where, still using pumps from when my mom was probably a teenager haha

Hi Dave,

Just a little peak at a members mug adds a lot to reading future posts, that's what got this started. I found myself in communication with a bunch of faceless people most of whom used an alias.....................
