|What a great bit of history. I love Uncle Joe's style, which is so typical of the time period. His story about Colorado reminded me of a trip I took in the 1970's, fishing the beaverdams near Snowmass with a buddy who lived in Evergreen. I'll bet many of us have a fishing uncle. Mind was Uncle John. He taught me a great many things about the pursuit of finned creatures. Thanks, Jason.|

In two of the larger dams located just above this spot, we observed in passing, fish are disturbing the surface of the water, feeding on a new hatch of mayflies. We will try our luck there first after we deposit our beer in the cold water, cache our lunch in a tree limb, away from bugs and ants, and hang up our jackets and knapsacks.
Got to love this guy!

as Dickens aptly stated, “Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress."
Nice! The original Mr Lore.

|I still have my first Shakespeare Wonder Rod and my Dad's old creel. We used to fill it with wet grass and put the trout in it. How times have changed.|
Jason, I guess you're back in Alaska now.
