Jon Boat hauler! fall pics

Took the Ranger Fishing again yesterday. went to Galax, Virginia up on the New River to fish. I knew as soon as i got there it was gonna be tough. The water was DINGY! evidentally a hard rain had it muddied up, when its like that, the fish are very hard to catch. also, the water was up which makes the current harder, and on top of that, the wind was blowing. However, it was a beautiful day and was jsut be glad to be out in the on the water. You know what they say,

a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work.
. Anyways i caught one smallmouth on a red crawdad cranknait. he hit it hard! had to take some pics of the Ranger! Also, got a few pics of the river and such, i just love the place!

PS...the Danger Ranger hit 50,000 on the clock yesterday, forgot to take picture
