BWCA August 2019 Photos

95% of time I was paddling with the pup so no good fish pics of my father/son/nephews.

Lake Michigan 2019 Note


Thinking it through and discussing some write up.  We have a lot of good pics; developed a good list of lessons learned, etc.  Probably more later on it; just a few images posted below.

Canoe training for the pup.  He was born April 28, 2018.  He was a little hesitant to get into the watercraft.  Kid tried to help him along and the dog decided to jump the canoe into the water far side.  We got it worked out.  He doesn't understand the concept of listing; will work on it.  By the end of this panfishing bit the kid was tying a large nymph (there was one tucked into the tackle box) onto the spinning rig and trying to cast it like one would cast a fly line; bad idea to bring that gear instead of fly rod.  I sometimes think it's "easier" for kids but closer study suggests otherwise.  For panfish anyway, fly rod pretty much supreme.
