Trout Sampling on the Smith River

If there’s one way to learn more about your local fishery, it’s to ride along with the biologist that manage it.  A few members of Smith River Trout Unlimited recently had that opportunity.
Here are a few images from a recent sampling of the Smith River in Martinsville, Virginia.

A Little Southern Culture.

It’s not often you’ll see words here.  But this time, I have to take time to thank my buddy Mike Sepelak.  He’s way better with the pen than I’ll ever be.  See for yourself: Mike’s Gone Fishing Again.
