Worms, worms, and more worms……and I’m not talking about nightcrawlers! I’ve heard a lot of conflicting reports for the Smith the last couple weeks. Some people say they did ok, but not great; others are saying it was extremely slow. My group is fresh off the Smith, and to the slow and just ok reports,.. read more →
