Float Fishing Today

 The catching was good with a Arkansas River stonefly and a two-bit hooker.
 Lucas rowed half of the time and fished half of the time.
 The red two-bit hooker caught many fish.
The weather was great for a float fishing trip today.  They are calling for snow here tomorrow afternoon.
