It’s been nearly a year since Tom and I last went fishing…

So, I was pleased when I got the text asking if I was able to fit in some time on the lake. Tom must have been feeling generous towards me, as we didn’t start until 7:30 a.m. which is late in the day for Tom.

It was good to be on the lake, but I had almost no luck with the fishing. I hooked one, but it got off the hook before I could land it in the boat. The water was extraordinarily clear, so I saw a lot of fish even if I didn’t catch any. Tom did better with four fish. Talking to some other anglers, it seems I wasn’t the only person having a slow day. I even put on my lucky fishing hat – to no avail.
