First, thanks to DD, Streamer and phg for stepping up and feedin' this crew...also thanks to everyone that stepped up and helped the cooks and did the dirty work(cleanup). Big thanks to Drew once again for the firewood(Nintendo was like a little kid) Joyce for the awesome dessert and Phil for the muffins.



Setting up camp in the dry

Mud, but as I said...as long as it's not raining the water's clearing up

Charcoal cooked assorted meats and Bronzeback Ale homebrew

Friday, long tough day of fishing in dirty water with southernfly, nando, bambo10, Cameron and Tim...happy with the results on a tough day.

Saturday, 12 mile float high up on the Southfork with southernfly, nando, Reuben(01pilot) and Tim, woohoo clean water...it was perverted, willing smallies everywhere

Sunday, floated the confluence with bamboo10, 01pilot, Cameron, Lucas and Tim...rather dirty water, but somewhat cooperative smaillies.

Thanks to all my float partners

Great food

Great fires

Great entertainment from Mr. Lucky, thanks Phil you're a class act

Tales from JT or Johnny Lightnin or caveman or stoneman

Ceegars with backwoods Joe

Young fisherman with a passion

Great to see old friends and meet some new faces

justjudy with a smallie on a Miss Prissy

Friends that couldn't make it(ain't namin' names or I'll leave someone out)

4 days just ain't long enough

Wildlife seen, 6 deer, a fawn drinking water and bleating the whole time, muskrats, a beaver, raccoon, and to top it off a coyote

Mr. Lucky had his own parking space

Spotted Jewelweed along the banks of the river, notice how the beautiful oranges of the flower compliment the orange brown water.

Wingstem and bumblebee along the river bank

Thistle

Mudpuppy fishin' the somewhat clear water on Saturday

The poor white duck that thinks he's a goose...I've seen him on this stretch or river for at least the last 3 years, guess the geese took him in as one of their own.
Can't wait 'til next year.

I am sorry I missed it. There a lot of people I haven't seen in a while.

I guess I should have posted my report over here as well. As a smallie fishing trip, it was a dud. All I caught, in three days of fishing, were 3 rainbow trout, 1 small red-eye, and a big eyed shiner.

As a camping trip, though, it was great! Great food, great weather and great company! Maybe next year I'll manage to catch a few smallies as well.
