      Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind

      “. Go forth and cleanse thine self!

I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
