With more curves than a bad cast, this beauty would look right at home hitched to an Airstream and parked next to some world class trout waters.

The great sucker spawn of 2017 is officially going down right now on the Guadalupe River. Grab those eggs, tie up some rigs and head down there ASAP. Be sure to grab your wading staff though, flows are at 600CFS and will easily knock even the most surefooted of us off balance with ease!
