We managed to spend two days on the Watauga River for Kris Maurer's bachelor party extroidinaire. Weather was good, fish cooperated, and the cold beer was good too!

I won't be wordy here are some pics!

I pretty much live and breathe paintball, but after reffing so many bachelor parties, I can say I'll definitely go fishing over a paintball bachelor party.

Shaggy! His name is Steven (Bubba) Dark. This kid grew up literally fishing the South Holston and Watauga River. His knowledge is un-foulable and he's alotta fun on the river! I don't just say that because he's a friend, because the kid knows his stuff. We caught fish while other boats killed their arms making cast after cast!

There are plenty of other fisherman and guides out there that would back me in saying Bubba isn't only a good dude but a great guide! Give him the work, he could use it because his real job has cut his hours back. We talked about his schedule this month. He's just about completely booked up for the spring and summer. April is just about full!

He can put you on some trophy fish!
