Saddle Up Trout Wranglers!
View from the sidewalk on Wilmington.
Installation day started off raining and chilly, just how the fish like it. With two handy fellows helping (Jed, who helped install the last group, and Mike) things got started at 8am and finished by 3pm with time off for lunch at one of the restaurants on the plaza. A solid day of digging and lifting heavy things, but all are in the ground and everyone is happy.

The blue concrete connects the pair to the singles under the tower.
The plaza is so big, the fish become invisible from the far end; good thing there are fish at this end too.
