“Music to my ears ….. from (my wife) Lee just now: “We need to make that an annual trip”. … a text from Kevin Vincent, yesterday
IT WAS music to my ears too KV.
Last week the Levin Bros. and myself floated the Buffalo River for 3 days with Kevin, his wife Lee, Greg Gardner and his son Chance, Mike Morfey and the leader of this crew of Texans, the man with the plan, John “Junior” Boatwright.
Junior and KV are old friends, fishing with me since ’09, and helped us with the first trial of our Buffalo floats a few years back. This year was a little experimental as well. With the low flows this year we had to leave the lower wilderness float and us the road system (and public camp sites) floating from Gilbert to Rush over 3 days.
It was low, seriously low which made life a little tough for those on the struggle sticks, the fishing was entertaining if not spectacular. Some nice smallies were caught by everyone, about a billion neon panfish kept everyone smiling and there was some serious sight fishing to big gar.
Junior actually hooked one of the biggest Ozark gar I’ve seen eat, but came unbuttoned. Abe, from Rim Shoals and Buck did a spectacular job with the camp and meals.
Hope you enjoy the images
