Last May on my spring steelhead trip, one of the rivers we ventured up had a bit of a problem near the bottom of the river, there was a very, very old tree (actually many trees) that had interlocked themselves into the river, with no way around it. We managed to get around it on the way up (a story i cannot tell here, for fear of my mother imploding if she ever heard of it), but had to find a way down on the way home

After a good 2 hours with the chainsaw, and virtually no progress, we this is what we resorted to...Gotta love UHMW! We did this for another 4 days (both in and out), and only got stuck once!

Oh, and it was totally worth it!
