Every year I, and a couple buddies take our dad’s to the Big D for a four day steelhead bender. Shuttling the gear and guys up the river in the Camo Sled made for nearly 60 miles a day of river running, but the flexibility it gave us, the ability to place sons and dads in different runs rather than hammer camp water for four days, made for some exciting fishing.
This year, my father was eager to use his recently acquired two hander. After a month or two of heading down for morning practice sessions near the Wheatland Ferry (there’s a great gravel bar there), he stepped into the cool water on the first full day of our trip and proceeded to connect the dots and complete the circle.
Great job dad!
