Well, the word from everyone around here is that the fishing is SLOOOW. This includes my own four hours of flinging flies on Thursday evening, more casting practice after a long cold Winter than anything. So, more photography...Enjoy!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Well, it's Spring for REAL now - the frogs started calling in the lake behind my house last night! Spring peepers AND wood frogs, plus I heard coyotes yipping off in the distance, kicked up a whitetail in the dark on my way back up to the house from the lake, and even saw "glow-worms" in the grass along the shore (I think they're firefly larvae). It was warm, humid, and still, after a day in which our temperature reached an incredibly balmy 75F (at least)!

Fishing is STILL sloooooow - I threw big pike streamers off the Tawas pier yesterday evening for a couple of hours, no takers. A big ice sheet had moved in from across the bay and there were "icebergs" floating around all over the place...still not quite there yet.
