Friends Steeled on the Sheboygan

A bright and beautiful afternoon on the Sheboygan River is always better with a friend and willing fish!  But if you don't have fish .. then a good friends are a fine substitute.

Karen Campbell and her husband, Jay and I met up with Dan Small; Dan Small Outdoors Radio and Wisconsin Outdoors PBS/TV; to ply the waters of the Sheboygan River, in search of steelhead, coho or king salmon.  No tails were lifted this fine afternoon, but tantalizing hook-ups, bumps, sightings and imaginations were abundant; regular enough to keep spirits high.

Memories ... this afternoon will be rehearsed often over the coming months and years.  Good times last/linger/fill/savor - well and long.

No fish were harmed - only assumed prowess was proven more assumption than reality. But in the company of good friends or new-friends-who-become-good, little else matters.

It was a fine day to be alive.  A fine day to be haunted by waters.

It was under-size and over-limit, so Dan had to release this
King Rockhohead, but -- it was a hook-up!
