We are blessed! Not one in a million could be doing what we are doing.
We are praising JESUS and giving God all the glory!!!
We left Cruger Sunday after preaching and arrived in Norfork before dark. As providence would have it the water was off Monday until 9 a.m. I was at the boat ramp at 6 a.m. Headed down river to the top of the new C&R and was into fish immediately. Wasn’t long before I was into a nice brown of 17 inches. Not long after that I landed a cutthroat of 17 inches! Plus many bows up to about 15 inches needed a brookie to get the slam. Water got to me at 9:30 and I headed “home” to mow. It was a great three hours of fishing.
Jack got in Monday night and the water was scheduled to be off from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Tuesday. We met at the boat ramp at 11. Did a little drifting until the water fell out enough to wade. Caught two bows stripping the wooly and one on a midge. I moved up stream while Jack fished our favorite spot. I was immediately rewarded with another 17 inch brown! Jack was staying busy with cutts and bows. He landed a 15 inch cutt (see below). This day the slam did not allude me. I found a pod of brookies that were willing. The water got to us as scheduled. Later in the evening Jack and I attended the North Arkansas Fly Fishers monthly meeting.
Jack was going to Springfield, MO Wednesday. The water was to be off until 1 p.m. so I was at the ramp at 6 a.m. once again. It was another great day. Would have had the slam again if I had not pulled off the brook. Lots of fish in three different places. It was so good I decided to leave early. Gail and I wanted to eat at Brookfalls for lunch, it was just as good as the fishing!
Finished mowing after lunch and we are looking forward to a nice quiet evening before heading home tomorrow and the Pro-Life Ms banquet.
David is in Tampa and we may come back next week for a couple of days.
