    Is it possible to hate someone you don't know?


    Very very nice.

    Daryl, apparently most of the guys don't realize that you don't have a real job; anyone going out seven days a week pounding the water like you do is eventually going to get "lucky..." Check my PM again. I knew you were good. I didn't know you were this good!!!! Nice work!!

    beautiful photos. it looks like the river is glacial. reminds me of the upper kenai. But few steelhead if any go up that far. those are pretty high mnts so i'm thinking a BC river? i spent 6 yrs on the kenai and just moved down. those memories and photos are etched on my hard drive and vivid in my memory. driving along side the thompson river on the way down was cool. those are some steep canyons and hwy driving. i would love to make a cast on that river while watching and listening to the locomotives...the trains as they funnel through heading north and south. the beauty of it all...what a good way to go if your time was up.

    an awesome piece of the thomson although it didn't appear to be glacial. On the way down i happend to stop and talk to a river front property home owner and he said it's closed for steelhead. that was april 3rd. if anyone is taking a trip up there this year i sure wouln't mind going along. The pic with the guy casting sure looks like a glacial river. not that i'm partial to alaska in any way, but it could be the upper kenai in fall, and the steelhead were hooked on the Anchor , )
