Boatmen and Backswimmers are on in Central Alberta

Today was warm, not too windy and the possibility of boatmen and backswimmer action spurred Karen and I on to get out on the water for a few hours. We launched at 11:30 am. Like two days ago, casting and retrieving flashbacks was working great. By 1 pm both Karen and I were both casting and retrieving. We were having excellent action as well. Long leaders with two flashbacks, one size 12 and one size 14 again worked well. We casted at rise forms. Strip, strip, pause, KABOOM; fish on!

By 3:30 pm; we packed up and headed to the football field. Friday Night Lights is a tradition in our house!
