We talked on the phone last night. He wanted to hit this hole above. There were lots of memories here for him. I informed him that "were" was the proper tense. The WDNR in its infinite wisdom had manicured his stream of dreams and it was now a mere shadow of its former self due to huge boulders and silting in of the once exceptional hole. I assured him that there were still holes in the area that the "Trout Theme Park" folks had not ruined. He will drive up in the middle of September. Another excellent hole gone because of the "TTP." The WDNR in its I know best mentality ruined this hole also and made it "improved."
