    Sounds like a great couple of days on the Dan. Are the fish still down toward South Boston or are they getting up near Danville yet? I usually fish up near Danville and as far down as near the fair grounds, South Boston gets to be a little far at one time from Patrick County.

    Sounds like a productive spot you have on the bank. Might be worth a drive from Richmond to check out.
