Hey, Maurice, that's a Canadian sockeye, too! Caught him up Keith White's way in BC on the Pitt River above the lake. Very pretty country! See you at Kamp!

Maurice - I'm guessing that the guy in Bluegrass Unlimited is Mike "Maddux", rather than me (Maddox), but I'll take the confusion anytime. The other Mike is a great picker. Also, it's nice that everyone in Canada now thinks I can actually pick.
