It seems the taller that Benjamin gets, the longer the stripers he catches get.  Looking forward to next years reports.

Re: 2020 Year in Review (Pic heavy)

Actually, I've had several guides tell me about how much work it really is. Looks like fun and glamor to the clients, but the guide sees all the work that the client doesn't. And I'd agree, that's not what retirement is supposed to be about. Just enjoy doing every day what you love the most, and spending time with those you love.
Happy Holidays and stay safe,
Bruce

Re: 2020 Year in Review (Pic heavy)

You made lemonade out of a very different kinda year. Bruce is right about guides..except the retirement part.  I just retired and have guided for 28 years part time. Full time is a heck of lot less stressful than part time..

Once again Curly nice post...and great pics.
