When my alarm hit at 6:00 am Saturday morning I was bursting with excitement to hit the road and spend the day in the Smoky Mountains. After rolling out of bed and throwing on clothes from the night before, I was in the car and on the road by 6:05. After a short stop to grab a cup of coffee, I was cruising up I-77 as the sun rose to the East over Lake Norman.

We just received a shipment of waist packs, sling packs and travel bags that were hand picked from the new 2014 Patagonia line. We like this gear a lot and we think you will as well. Here are a few items that caught our attention early on and a brief summary of what you can expect to find from Patagonia.
Our Hosted Trip to the Andros South Lodge is just 60 days away. We’ve been talking to our clients primarily about the pursuit of big bonefish in the Bahamas – that is what Andros South Lodge is all about.

The #1 question: Why?
Here is a pretty interesting post from our friends over at Field & Stream Fly Talk. “This year I've decided that I want to do a "double-10." I want to catch a 10-pound brown trout, and at 10-pound rainbow trout, both on the fly. But here's the rub: no stockers! Only wild fish count. And only North American fish, no freak chasing in South America.” – Kirk Deeter

With the weather all over the place here in Colorado you need to pick your days with precision. The window opened up for me on the last day of the year – December 31, 2013. With weather predicted to be in the 40s, flows on the South Platte River right about 100 CFS, and only a slim chance of precipitation in the forecast, I took the opportunity. Plus, I was looking forward to catching my last fish of the year.
