Due to the extreme danger of the Coronavirus as an unseen “Klingon” that can get attached to any human, sometimes without a person showing any symptoms, it is too risky to play the game of chance with unwittingly transmitting this bug. So we have decided to play it safe with our staff, guides, and guests, and will no longer offer trips this spring/summer and will wait until the dust settles and the risk improves to offer a safer venue for enjoying the great outdoors together.
Since everyone will (or should) be hunkering down during the wait time for a vaccine or wonder-drug, it is a good time to do some reading. So, this is my cue to again advertise for my book:
Idaho’s Salmon River Chronicles
Reflections of a River Guide
Gary Lane’s Oar Lore
Amazon customer review: “Those of us who have run rivers with Gary know him to be a superb yarn spinner while around a campfire and while floating down Western waterways. This book is part biography, part compendium of river lore, and part call for an ecologically minded effort to enjoy and preserve all the grandeur of our natural wilderness. This volume will appeal to those who know Gary but also to those who haven’t yet had the pleasure of befriending and learning from one of the most interesting guys you’ll ever meet, on or off the river. There’s a lot here to enjoy.”
Available: signed copies at our shop, and/or kindle version or paperback at Amazon.

www.MountainAngels.com – This is a site to a long-time-ago river friend and his creative silversmith art, along with other cool stuff. His Campfire Tales and River Songs with Johnny Buffalo is a CD I listen to often. It gets you back on the river even when you are not on the river.
