Hey Tootie. Doing well my old friend. Quite busy with work, life, and keeping sane during this nutty period. Trying to reclaim the womanly office to turn it into a man cave to get my flyfishing going again. Wife is done with her schooling now and she wants to break out her black beauty you gave her for the fishing fun. The entire family is also gearing up our bows for bowfishing as well to get out of this crazy isolation nightmare.

How are you and supervisor Jane doing over there?

The reason I asked about Steelhead Tooty was because I was over at the Fishing Book Library group and saw your photo post of a Steelhead book .

Tooty.when was the last time you fished for Steelhead ? Only done it a few times in the Salmon River by Pulaski NY .Boy would I like to do that again!

    BUT LETS' PUT THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE : WHO IS LEO ? VERY COMPLEX QUESTION with a short and simple answer. He's one of the most giving of time, knowledge , and expert advise , on the site period. If I am…
