We are heading into week two of the early spring season for the driftless area of Wisconsin. In the last two years I have worked at the most four months. The construction trade aint what it used to be, and the well has pretty much run dry. I've seen $1500 dollars in car repairs in the last week or so, and to top it of I need a new pair of wading boots. The only thing that will save my month is to get out there on my favorite creek, feel the peace of a calm driftless valley, and have a run at a trout ot two. Funny when you need something so bad, its always the toughest to get. Makes me wonder if I'll ever get out there. Right now its something that I need more than ever.
