I headed North once again to meet Peewee and Dean. The weather people said it was supposed to be in the 50's with the sun shining. They lied. I was planning to find some sun to fish in, but the wind ended that. I headed upstream to get out of the wind. I met Peewee and Dean which more or less turned out to be one of the highlight of the day. Having said that, if Dean doesn't start doing a better job managing the weather Peewee and I are going to dock his pay. I hit the water and caught one immediately on a caddis Peewee had tied. ( Not a bad caddis Peewee, hint, hint) The dropper got tangled in it and I had to cut the sucker off. I retied and caught a few fish on the midge in between wind gusts. I finally realized I was in the process of slowly freezing to death and climbed out and headed downstream. I called Dean on the way and found out my buddies had had all the fun they could stand and had headed to the tall grass. Dean had already had a shower. I fished one spot for about 20 minutes and caught three more and said the heck with it and headed home. I ended up with about 10 or so fish and numb feet.

I actually caught a fish that had his tail bitten off. My camera was dead at the time due to my batteries having died or I would have taken a picture. I would have suspected Peewee, but he doesn't fish that spot.
