A beautiful day would greet us for the maiden launch of the new boat to break in the 2017 fishing season. This by far is the latest start to the fishing season we have had on 6-8 years, and it showed because of the current level of stress. Well with work and family obligations now behind us, it is time
to get with the day on the river and fish.
The new boat would not disappoint, although a bit heavier that our 3 previous outfits ( this one has a few more bells and whistles) it tracked and rowed very nicely. We would also experiment with longer oars than we previously had, but again, work well and rowed like a dream.
Having caught the first $8000 fish, to break in the boat, an IPA would be in order, and aptly the new Vessel would be named, "Melvin" after this delicious IPA for Melvin Brewing. Melvin fits the boat perfect.
