Moose Alert on the Might Sveum River

It’s not often that I don’t set up a rod on a float trip.  Okay, this was the first time ever but my folks didn’t even want to go for a float at first.  But it was such an incredibly nice day they finally stepped up as long as it was less than four hours.  In order to meet the time frame I had to row hard downstream most of the float.  Pushing makes some noise and we awoke some resting wildlife.
