That spot looks familiar. Some great lookin' bull gills there, and the bass ain't so bad either! All those on a fly rod should have been great sport!

Wonderful series. My father and I used to spend some great days out in the canoe on the smaller lakes around the Hibbing area and this series really takes me back to great memories. Excellent blue heron image!

That looks like a great time. I was actually out in my canoe last night and caught my best bass from this small lake - 19 1/2". However, I sure would like getting into some sunnies with ultralight spinning tackle. I've never tried fly fishing, but it sounds like a blast.

I agree with Shawn on the heron shot.

Hey Johnny Redhorse, is this that lake that is over by Mcquade Lake? I can't remember the name, but I remember that we had to paddle down a creek to get into it. If it is the same lake I'm thinking of, there are or were some standing dead timbers in one end that used to have these ultra weird birds that used to perch up in the trees and sit still with their wings spread. I now know that those birds are cormorants smile Thanks for any feedback.

    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
