After being released from the work detail, I made it to the Jordan, Through no fault of my own …well, maybe a little my fault, I had been absent from the river, but now I finally headed deep into a section of woods bordering the river that seemed impenetrable from the road; and with good reason. Large trees had been completely uprooted. I mean their root base were perpendicular to the ground sticking out from the trunk like a wall.
It took some time getting deeper into the woods along the river further upstream. Where I finally came out, the river seemed pristine; everything was as it should be …including brookies. For an hour I cast Hendricksons in all stages and was rewarded with natives.
It was good to be home.
