A Letter


The Hoosic Upper Beat
October 4, 2000

Dear Bob,

I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much Carl Piccari and I appreciated the opportunity to stay at Battenkill Lodge and fish your water — especially the Hoosic River.

Over and over again, we said, "I can't believe the fishing is this good."

For 3 days we fished over rising fish with olives, caddis, rusty spinners and Isonychia. And the trout were willing — it was almost easy. The lodge was great, too. What a setting.

The amount of work you have done to create such a fishing experience must have been tremendous, and we thank you for it. If I seem a little effusive...well, we had a great trip. I hope we'll be back!

Thanks again!
