A quick run to the stream before the party
I set Beau up with a pole with a poor real just to make sure he didn't catch too many
One and done

Tom and Jerry. Just the two of us working on the BEE/Hoop House.
8' X 12' clea corrugated polycarbonate roof panels
Not there yet but a step in the right direction. This structure will provide the bees with a well protected winter shelter and maybe they'll have a little better success surviving the cold winter months.
After cutting a load of fire wood and blocking it up a guy deserves a little stream time.
No luck today but Mart gets the good boy scout award for picking up trash.

Another stretch of Driftless water.
Jace and I hit the stream for a little
Jace went up stream so I went down stream. I missed one and caught another at the first pool.
Down below I hit several nice pools, with no luck.
Ever;y time I thought about heading back I'd see another nice little ripple just a few yards down stream
I did pull one more from a small little pool under an overhanging root.

What a nice start to a Friday evening. I hit several spots along the Maquoketa with no luck. Another stream that I didn't know the name and than I finely caught a creek chub. So I was happy that I caught a fish.
I hit a pool a 100 yards down stream and I had a bump. The next cast I fished slow and BAM ! I got a hi and I set the hook.
Don't horse it. Take your time and keep the line tight.
It's surprising what you can catch on some of these little streams in the Driftless Region.
Catch, Kiss and Release
