November Yakin’

It’s November again, but something is different this year. It’s considerably cooler, fishing has been slow, and this year, we have kayaks! This means if fishing from the shore is slow, we can go out on water and go find them. What are we looking for in November? Crappie of …

The Creek Mythology

There is something magical about wading. When you step into the river, it is like you’re in a different dimension. A different world where time seems to slow down and nothing else seems to matter. It’s soothing, calming, and makes everything ok. That is why I love to wade…….
