Friday Fishing Report: Cold
Click on photos for full size image.
Down here in the valley
it was a fine day. There were showers, but they skirted around us.
It was warm.
Cat basking warm.
Up at the lake
a squall was blowing through. The wind was strong and from the north. A cold wind.
I heard someone say
the fishing was good until the weather came up. Until I got there.
Suffice it to say
I tried a variety of approaches to lure the wily trout.
I found a sheltered nook
and huddled for warmth. None was to be found.
If you had told me
while I was freezing in the river in March that I would be freezing in the lake in May, I would have socked you in the jaw.
But you would have been right.
