There's nothing better than having good friends to fish with. Jim Shifflet's "Stone Cottage" is just upstream from LoBank. We share a passion for both fishing and bird dogs.
Jim has a German Shorthair and a new setter pup "Tess" out of CH. Taz and Greg Hilla's Miss Canada. She's 5 months old and I can't wait to see her get her first nose full of bird scent.
Jim and I floated this past week and had a great day. He says he rolled the biggest fish he's seen in the daytime on the North Branch. I saw the splash but the only fish I saw him land fit in the palm of his hand.
