We fished calm water
We fished riffles
We fished pools
We fished for 3 point 5 hours and got net zero
We learned a lot or think we did but after getting skunked the only thing we know for sure is that we had a really great day and a really good lunch. We need to do it again soon Chester aka Backstroke
