Musky Mania

It’s been awhile since our last blog, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t had any good stories since we last wrote.

Arctic Char in Iceland

I’ve been bugging Micah for a while to take me on a trip outside of the US.

By this time of the year, most of us Minnesotans are already looking forward to 60 degree days, fall colors and sporting our Patagonia fleeces or Paul Bunyan flannels—but it’s the end of September and temperatures were still in the 90’s in St. Paul, Minnesota this past weekend! Way too hot. Fortunately, some friends had... Continue Reading →
