Spring Has Sprung!

Spring Has Sprung!

Well folks, spring has sprung! As a guide, I measure the true beginning of spring with the advent of Smallmouth Bass in our tributaries. The trees may start to bud and the flowers may start to pop their heads in the gardens but the arrival of Smallmouth Bass is a good measure of warm weather to come....
