Cover 100
This issue's photograph for the cover was taken just a few days before going to print with this 100th issue. Publisher, Dave, and sons, Robby, Jacob, and Sammy, took their new boat, the Olga, out for a spin on the Rogue River. They'll be busy this summer catching and eating the many varied types of fish that are bountiful in the southern Oregon area. Thanks to boat builder, Wayne Adams (driving the boat), the Duffys will enjoy the healthy benefits of fresh air, fresh fish, and a whole lot of just plain fun.
