Got to do a trip for PHWFF Charlotte about a week ago on the Watauga. Had a decent day and put a few put in the boat. Im glad they had fun.

I love putting kids on fish. My little buddy Aden helping me pull in some browns on the SoHo.

Day 2 on the raft and I pretty much forgot to fish.

Im calling it, " The Great Tadpoliyo". Better hurry and get some. They're about to be everywhere. More colors to come.

I don't usually take selfies, but when I do, you can bet it's on the water.
