Default Mike Popick and President Carter

How about a shout out to Mike Popick aka Runner?

Mike, a self-taught artist, carved this brookie for President Carter and presented it to him recently when the Carters fished at Fern Valley. President Carter was truly pleased with his generous gift! Awesome job, Mike!!

This young man is still gong strong. What a blessing to see him in the water!

And one more...

This guest caught this gorgeous rainbow on her first cast (and her first time fly fishing)

Jimmy Carter, 93 years old I believe!! Really great to see him out there. Nice carving of a brookie, really pretty. Beautiful rainbow that the guest caught on her first cast.
