Weekend with Norland Day1
It's been some time since Gene and myself have had the opportunity to wet a line together. The spring fishery is on the verge of popping over here on the West side so we decided we better take advantage of some mutual time off and hit the road for a few days of laughs on the water. Norland's curse puffed it's chest and we awoke to snow this morning and bone chilling temps.
We arrived at the cabin late in the afternoon and decided to hit the river for a few hours to see how things were shaping up. The traffic was up a bit but there seemed to be a few fish kicking around judging by the stringers lining the bank. The unexpected cold reeked havoc on our bodies along with the added frustration of iced up guides. We managed to tough it out and even bring one to the bank.
The remainder of our trip looks promising as the forecast has the weather making a turns for the better. The river is in amazing shape and should only improve over the coming days. Looking forward to Sun, Mon, and Tues. Stay tuned...
