It feels like Thanksgiving was just 10 minutes ago and that Halloween was only 15 minutes ago yet here we are rounding the corner into Christmas. Time is an enigma and seems to go by faster and faster with each passing year. Typical of this time of year the river is quiet. Seeing another boat […]

Unlike last week I did not have to call upon the Paw Patrol to distract the kiddos this week to help me write this report.

As per my wife I smell like fish. I sit here sipping hot coffee after a day in the cold wind ripping streamers down the Norfork. Paw Patrol plays in the background to distract my minions while I write this report because as soon as I finish up here they will dogpile me like a […]
