  1. Very tempting! But we will have to wait until nearer the summer. Your photo's in the "red bubble" window are fabulous! I've posted a few from the North Forks area, but you're inspiring me to add more. Hope you will post your spring and summer fishing trip offerings as well.

    You live in an amazing world. Thanks for sharing it with us, peace and all good things for you in fishing and in life!
