The mighty Toad is a silly boat for Pacific fishing, really. A rehabilitated Utah skiboat, 20 feet long, Toad does her best in her new life as a fishing boat, going really, really fast in pursuit of the wily salmon, halibut and rock cod. (©Ted Pease 2009)

Drowning Party

Trinity River Rafting’s intrepid Nate (aft) takes a drowning party into Hell’s Hole on the middle Trinity. The victims are Wendy (yellow helmet), Judy (in front of her), Alex (in blue, being pitched into Gina and Grandpa Lloyd), and Peez, (purple aft—which says everything, doesn’t it?). In the next photo of this sequence, only Nate is above water, which is why he’s the guide.
