    What a beast. That guide is fixing to be really busy and I bet really expensive.

    America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.

    The guy that was the guide on the trip had the unofficial record two weeks ago.
    Those paddlefish swim upstream to spawn every spring, so it could have been caught in the Kaw tail waters or any of the River tributaries along the way. I’ve broke more than one surf rod trying to get one in against the current.
