Little Truckee Float

Well, this one might stir some emotions in a few people but what can you do. This spring Daren Elmore and i floated the Little Truckee River! It was late spring and the river was running at over 1000 CSF. Daren is the California Rep for Scientific Anglers, Umpuqa, Buff and Air Rafts. He had a 9 foot raft that we figured would be perfect for a little jaunt down the LT. I always thought it would be fun to float just for grins and giggles if for no other reason. Luckily it was one of those days where there wan't a million other anglers down there to yell at us. In fact, we had the whole river to ourselves which is a rare occasion these days on the LT even at those flows.

Back in action.

O.K., here's the deal. I haven't been posting much on this blog over the summer. This spring i got busy with guiding a bunch and pretty much stayed busy all summer and fall. Between guiding, producing another big movie project and all the other side work it takes to keep both businesses running, I've just plane been crunched for time. I've got a tone of photos, videos and stories that i need to start getting up on here to get caught up. So i'm going to try and make it a point to start uploading again. Stay tuned for lots of goodness from this summer and fall. And i'll try to keep up a bit better over the winter.

Thanks for your interest and or support to anyone who comes once in a while to check in.
