Sitting in a skiff with the Captain, I dangled a fly line in the clear waters of a local lake trying to keep my mind on fishing. As long as there wasn’t a breath of wind, the surface of the water was a mirror. The reflections kept me reaching for my camera to document the beauty of the day times two.
Oops! I had to interrupt my ooh-ing and aah-ing to take the dip net and bring in this trout for supper.
Back to my trance over the gorgeous scenes around me. These ducks might be scaup – not sure. They were at the far shore of the lake, happy to chat and exchange gossip, until we came too close for their comfort.
Time to go! But in a short while they were back again.
What a fine day it was. The fish were biting and the mosquitoes were not. It doesn’t get much better than this.
