Today Bill and Frank met me in the morning for an outing. We were all pretty fired up about getting out today. We were optimistic to say the least.
We headed into the river armed with the proper ammunition to do battle with the silver bullets.
The water was a chalky green but cleared up nicely as the day went on .

While I started slow with a couple; Bill and Frank hit the right hole at the right time and were on fire.

I found my own rhythm on the water and started slowly catching up. The fish were mixed in sized today from little silver skippers to big mamma's and bucks that fought hard.

By the end of the day there were smiles by everyone and we left happy,elated, and most of all satisfied with a job well done.
Honestly after a day like today one could die and be happy that it was his time.
The weather held despite the drizzle and bitter winds from time to time.
Just couldn't ask for more.
A good day with good people.........
