The Obsession Intensifies
Anyone that knows me can tell you I have a minor case of OCD. My obsessive compulsion is steelheading. It is what fuels my spirit. It makes me feel young and it sets me straight when life knocks me off kilter. With the recent property acquisition in the heart of Michigan's fabled trout and steelheading waters I have been frantically searching for a means of reaching the inaccessible waters. I was certain I wanted a Jet Sled but couldn't justify the price for the boat that I wanted. At the same time the Hyde Low Profile drift boat intrigued me and brought a flexibility and value that no Jet Sled could parallel. An opportunity came by earlier this week and after careful deliberation and negotiation I struck a deal with a gentleman who's leisure time focus had changed.
I have yet to pick her up but hope to in the coming weeks. I must admit...I am rather excited about getting out on the water in her with some friends.
