    Damn Brown Hunkered Down Under Rock Photo by Rick Cox The Fall season recipe is in full swing here in Dogpatch. Crisp mornings prevail, brilliant colors from Mother Nature’s paint brush grace us and the days keep getting shorter and the nights longer. All of this of course kicks the fish in the butt and […]

This means temps are north of 100 degrees during the day, the water is warming, the bugs are suffering heat stroke, wet wading is required unless you are allergic to water (wtf), and you best think about mornings and evenings with a nice […]
