Fished all weekend and got just one 'eye. Pretty darn slow up there right now at this time of year. I did catch a bunch of northerns though. Crappies were pretty turned off too. Just caught a few - nothing to write home about. I think this may be the last weekend before the ice comes. Can't wait for the hard stuff so we can start getting some more good reports rolling on this forum again. Looks like it is time to finally put away the boat!
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
