|Dad catches a pike. One of many.|
|He also caught some blugs.|
For these trips we like to award First Fish, Biggest Fish, and Most Fish honors. The envelope please:
|"First Fish" went to Harlan with this trophy.|
To be fair, First Fish Honors will usually go to the first person to cast a fly from the end of the dock. Harlan offered Dad the chance to snag this award, but he declined.
|"Most Fish" caught on Shag Lake honors went to Dad with a combination of Pike, Bass, & Blugs....|
|But when we add in the trout from Escanaba and Boney Falls...|
|Finally, Wendy tries her hand at Tenkara fly-fishing.|
We had high hopes Wendy would finally break through on the Fishing Wall of Fame. She is the only sibling not to make the Wall because she has never actually caught a fish. Alas she was skunked again. Perhaps next year.
