Not long before this outing I received a new old stock TFO FSG 3/4 glass rod and I wanted to take it out. Initially the intention was to fish the local mountains on a section of river that has been recently opened. When we arrived at the base of the hill though we were disappointed to learn that the only road into the area was closed for construction. We had come up with Plan B and only two real options existed. One Double back the way we came and fish another recently opened river or continue north and fish the area I scouted just weeks ago. I decided on the later as I planned on taking my dad to the former in a few days. So with another hour drive we headed northbound.
