Howdy folks! It's been a few months since we sent out the 'ol newsletter and thought you might be intererested in what we've been up to. Well, mostly... battling all the rain that Mother Nature thinks we need.... :) It's boogered up fishing trips, kayaking and tubing... but the river has had SUPERB water levels all year so far... guess that's the positive!! (There's always one, right?!) Oh, and there's still trout in the river... got hold of a 20"+ rainbow a few weeks back on a caddis stimulator dry fly... and yes, she was returned to the river to be caught again!

Snot Otter in the House!
After 3 years of working with the state filling out applications, sending in resumes and getting the proper channels worked out.... we now have a live hellbender on display at the shop! Thanks goes out to Lori Williams, a wildlife biologist that has her own hellbender, Rocky, to show folks at festivals and special events. She helped us work with the NC Zoo and the Marion Fish Hatchery to get our own baby! If you don't know what a hellbender is... they are native salamanders to our mountain streams that can reach a total length of over 2 feet!! Our little guy (or girl) is around 6 inches long now and is growing well... he's gained 5 grams in weight so far in the 4 weeks we've had him.... :) Come by to visit and see how cute he is!!
