That water is cold enough when I float down to Lake Billy Chinook during the summer. I dont think I'd want anything to do with it in winter.

nice looking fly in first segment of video, lemme guess your chasing big dollies in those deep holes.

love the fish skull heads, we have em here at the shop (hareline dubbin) but havent had the time to tie with em yet due to duck season going on
