Well the boots finally bought the farm after a 3 year career. I'll miss those suckers. On their last trip to the river they served me well, but now I'm on the hunt for a new pair. Aaron Jasper from TroutPredator.com tells me that he has a pair of high end Patagonia boots that look like their fresh out of the box even after some trips through some rough water. I was thinking possibly Simms. So, we'll see.
This little bass was storing up some fat for the winter!
This brute, 16", came out of a deep hole I had never caught any fish out of.
