|purple loosestrife are all over|
I arrived in the middle of the afternoon on a Sunday in August and needless to say I was not alone. People were out enjoying the sun whether swimming, floating down the river in an inner tube or canoeing or kayaking. But that was all ok because my mission was to look and see the character of a new section of the river. I traveled light with just my long nymph rod and a small box of nymphs as I was planning on covering a lot of ground.

I don’t know if I learned any new tactics but I did see some areas of the river that warrant some further investigation and found a few fish along the way!
