Several of us on this list saw one of the most amazing sights ever on a
NANFA trip. We were at the Conasauga River in TN several years ago on a
really beautiful Saturday. After netting down the river, we waded back up to
where we parked and there, in the middle of the river sitting on some rocks,
was a nude Santa Claus soaping himself up and bathing in the river while
taking hits off of a can of Bud. I got the feeling that he did this on a
regular basis...
