Our good friend, and Pecos paddling partner, Scott Gartman (Scent of a Fisherman) just posted this trailer for his upcoming video about our misadventure on the lower Pecos River last year. Today marks the one-year anniversary of our Pandale put-in for that ill-fated trip, and Scott’s done a good job of providing his viewers with
