Ok, got that off my chest.  Now if I could just get rid of the 20 lb. weight on my chest.  No fun having "terminal' head and chest cold while rowing 17 miles in snow and rain and 35 degrees and 40 mph winds.  I want this weather in December when the mallards and Canadas are here not in May.  Oh well, I do love my job.

Fishing report:  Of course my fly fishermen have to endure the same lovely weather.  Fishing is almost always good on the Reef and this weekend was no exception.  In spite of the horrific weather, the dedicated guide managed to control the boat well enough in the gale force winds and my guests put a respectable number of fish in the net.  Several fish over 20" and that is real measuring stick.  Most of the rainbows are now done spawning.  I think they take a few days off and then begin their 6 month feeding binge. Size #18 Reef worms and egg patterns were the primary choices from the menu.

A shout out to all my hunting clients.  If you have never hunted Sage Grouse, you need to add this magnificent bird to your trophy room.  The North Platte Lodge has leased the finest Sage Grouse lands in the world.  The season is a short few weeks the last half of September.  We have only a few days available so call the Lodge right away to reserve a hunt of a lifetime.  307.237.1182

Go Huskers!
