FISHING in Western North Carolina
Gus and I just got back from some great fishing in Florida at Ft. Myers Estero Beach, and lucked upon Captain Alex Dolinsky, Spot on Charters. We went out one early morning on the back bay and had lots of fun - caught trout and red drum. If you're down that way, you'll want to hook up with him! Oh, there is a video where you can see Gus and me in action! And I had time to write a few Beach Stories, too!
“TROUT FISHING: We had a wonderful time, esp just being here in this beautiful place. Jackson County is lucky this place exists. We love the fireplace, the porch and the roar of the creek. Trout fishing was fun, too. ”

“NO TV'S: Linda’s hubby here: We had a wonderful time again. This place brings out the magic in a relationship and like the wood fuels the fireplace, this place fuels our passion and commitment. Nothing like leaving all your cares at home and spending time together without daily (TV, etc) distractions. I hope this place can remain the same over the years. We all need a “slow down place” so our emotions can catch up and be found again. ”
