Dumb Luck counts?
I'll spare you all the 'back story' but moved here (Rogue River Valley) back in the mid-90's to build vineyards. As the 'closing date' on the property was late Fall, not much to do .... but fish, and fish, and fish for the next few months.
Jim Jones (aka JDJones on the board) came up to visit ... and never looked back ... save for the packing up/move up 'here.' Both of us have about a 10 minute drive to one of our fav fishing places. See someone else on the bar during the week?
Very, very unusual.
I won't even bring up how short a drive it is to the North Umpqua, the Coast, lakes for still fishing, etc., and etc.
