I was able to sneak in some fishing over Labor Day weekend. I took the kayak out to a lake I haven't been on in 10 years. The water was quite clear so the shallows were choked out with weeds. The DNR was actually out spraying Milfoil that same day. I found a deep weedline where the fish were stacked up and was able to pick them apart with a Drop Shot and a Deep Crankbait.
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
