Ask Sherb anything.

I'll start with this:

That's really cool Sherb.

Did you get to fish that day?

I hardly ever get to go driftboat fishing (I've only hired guides a few times, and don't know anybody with a driftboat, but I have pontoon), but how does that work for you...

- do you swap out rowing with who you are fishing with?
- can you go alone?
- do you mostly drift the same stretch of river?
- how long do you drift for... all day, half day... depends?
- How much do you buy off your wife to let you do this?
- Can I come when you bring Buffco?

I did get to fish that day (off camera).
the guy rowing the boat typically doesn't fish unless there's someone else to row.
you can go alone, but there's not really a point unless you want to stop and nymph somewhere.
Length of float depends on shuttle length and what's fishing that day.

that trip is pre-second kid so it didn't cost me anything.
