Arkansas Welcome

We left home might early this morning (about 3:30) so that we'd have a little play time before gathering for dinner at Mockingbird Bay Resort on the banks of Norfork Lake in Arkansas' Ozark Region. I'm happy we left when we did. Nathaniel got to fish a little while on Dry Run Creek and managed to land a beautiful brown trout. A mighty fine lead in for three days of fishing on the lake, which begin tomorrow morning.

I suspect we'll slip back down to try run at least one more time while we're in the area -- maybe Saturday morning. This trip is almost certainly Nathaniel's last chance to fish Dry Run because he turns 16 in a little more than a month.

Tomorrow morning we'll fish for bass with pro angler John Murray. Before the week is over, we may also fish for walleyes, crappie and stripers. I suppose I'd better rest a while. It doesn't really seem like it was even today when we left Clarkesville!
