It is not the killing ...; it is the contest of skill and cunning. The true hunter counts his achievement in proportion to the effort involved and the fairness of the sport.

Hey, Radar. Glad to be seeing more of your posts. \:\)

Just wondering - How long did the float take from Chickasaw to Williamsport? I think that's about 9 river miles if I remember correctly. I'm going to try that soon. We've floated another section of the Duck a couple of times. We haven't done great yet but it looks promising when we get to know the water better.

Glad the hook removal went well. A word of caution to everyone about that - I had a similar thing happen to me. The ER Dr told me that he had recently had a guy come in one evening after fishing all day with a hook that had embedded in the heel of his hand early that morning. By the time the fisherman came to the ER the hook had worked its way down so deep that the ER Dr could not cut it out. The poor fisherman had to have a surgeon remove it to prevent nerve damage.

Oh well, we're guys - danger is part of the fun.

It is 12 river miles and it took about 10 hours to float . We almost bit off more than we could handle that day because the current was slack for long stretches and we had to paddle the entire way . I'm going to try a different section and use my trolling motor next time for the slack water sections .
The hook worked it's way farther into my finger too .
