I recently fished the SoHo. Knowing my private shame in having never been to the mystical river, Overbrook suggested that I call River Man for some advice. He has fished it a time or two. So I did. Blake generously invited me to be his fishing guest for 3 straight days.

The conditions were challenging but the fishing was great, nonetheless. They generated all day, every day, for the entire weekend. To say temps were freezing would be an understatement. In fact, temps were well below freezing much of the time. As true sportsmen, however, we fished hard. Well, I did. Blake mostly guided.

Fishing was very good on Friday and Saturday. Plenty of hook ups during our time on the water and a fair number of missed strikes. (We were also able to irrefutably confirm that I am a better fisherman than Overbrook.) Caught a few Sunday, too.

Sunday was a bit more challenging. Still, it was a great day. I had the good fortune of meeting Doc the night before and he joined us in the boat. So between Doc and Blake you couldn't ask for better company on a cold day with snow blowing sideways. Looking forward to meeting up with Doc this Spring for some blue lines.

I am also excited to visit the river in some warmer weather. Might bring the girls up on a camping trip at some point so they can catch some of the big carp that haunt one of the tribs.

Enjoyed visiting with JT a bit, too. He came out of hibernation for a trip down the mountain. Everyone at the Bee Cliff Cabins (BKatz's group) was great.

On my ride home, I headed east for the trip though Boone. I have never been car sick and didn't know it could happen to a driver. However, I had to roll down the window for those roads -- talk about some curves! Finally made it home in time to pick up some Valentine Day's flowers for the ladies in my house.

All in all, it was a great trip with fish every day. Couldn't have asked for a better time. The fishing was grand and I met several new people. Looking forward to the next visit.
