Well, as many of you know we have made the move to Monticello, Minnesota . We now live on the banks of the Upper Mississippi River. We are still living out of boxes as we do some work on the place and try to make it our new home. The river out the back is in great shape and things our looking good for the upcoming season. We could however, use some warm weather and less rain. Fishing guides are as bad as farmers. I don’t think we’re ever really happy with the weather. Early season is always a crap shoot. The rivers have been up and down making things a bit unpredictable. Despite the conditions thus far, we’ve still managed to land some fish and enjoy some beautiful days on the river. One recent day the evening was spectacular. The sun was out, the wind died down and the golden time of the day made the trip worth while. Fish were eating poppers and everything seemed right. My client turned to me as we both took in the glory of the Creator and said, “This is like balm from heaven.” I couldn’t agree more. We were both just glad to be in a driftboat floating down another glorious river here in the Midwest, doing what we love to do.
