Comments for the Week:

The Chosen is low and clear! Chrome Silvers are pouring in every day while trout are everywhere. On the banks, behind salmon beds or in the root wads, you can’t lose.  Dollies are getting more and more colorful by the day in concert with the foliage overhead, autumn is assuredly creeping in.
