A few days away. Fishing some. Quilting some. Tying some. Working some.

Smallmouth bass. Donna. All of the fish were in the 14" to 16" range. All were released.

A new fly tying space. If I did not know better I swear it was made just for me.

Checkout the claws. Sorry the picture is blurry.

Father's Day 2010. Fishing in Delta.

Sunfish, Bluegill, Bream, Brim, Copper Nose or Pumpkin Seed.  No matter what you call them they are fun to catch on light tackle (2 wt fly rod).

All in all pretty slow fishing. But, sunny warm and family made it a great father's day.
Thanks Scott, Kellie, Ed and Donna for a fun day.

A little work and little play in between the rain drops.

A little quiet time.

Slightly undersize walleye. Less than 15". Returned to the waters.

Largemouth Bass. A legal length of 17". Out of season. Returned to the waters.

Common Snapping Turtle.  Enjoying lunch. Rock Bass was the only menu choice. LEFT ALONE..... because!...........

 .......... I really like my fingers and toes. Second half of lunch soon to be gone.

Road trip.... bus trip to Bayfield.

Today we took a bus trip to Bayfield WI. We took our bikes and joined Ed on the bus for the trip over to Bayfield. We did a little site seeing, had lunch, poked around some of the shops that were open. The weather was great. The crowds were small and fun was had by all.

This photo was taken near the U.S. Coast Guard station in Bayfield.

That's Madeline Island in the background.

I caught this guy sneaking out of Morty's..... and those aren't our bikes in front of Morty's. By the way I hear rumor that they serve Rolling Rock.

A new addition to the camper. It's very own quilt.

Our camper now has it's own theme quilt. A fishing theme should be no surprise to anyone who knows us or reads this blog.  The quilt was handmade by Donna...... mostly on the QT. It was only when she needed help deciding which was a Northern Pike and which was a Muskie that I was told about the "surprise".

And here it is in the camper. I think it adds a little style and class to our traveling quarters.

This is the main theme area at the top and bottom of the quilt.

Each corner has it's own unique panel. This is a "dandelion" which has special meaning to my life long love of fishing.

This is the upper right corner panel. Not a half bad cast.

This is the lower left corner. The reel is made of individual piece of cloth stitched together to make  a great looking fly casting reel.

This is the lower right corner. A fishing creel. By the way it is full with our limit for the day.
