We’ve been hard at work here but today we took the early afternoon off to go fishing. We try to fish as much as we can during the season – we want lots of fish for smoking, canning and grilling. Those first fish we catch are expensive, because we are “paying off the fishing licences” but over the season we can put a lot of fish in the freezer for a small amount of money. We can always use fishing tips and continue to learn more and more every year that we spend on the water.
It was beautiful out for the first part of the afternoon – the sun was shining and the lake was calm.
I got one little one in the boat and that turned out to be the only hit we got today. Since any day on a peaceful lake is incredible, we were more than content. That trout will make a nice addition to scrambled eggs in the morning, don’t you think?
The next time we looked up, this is what we saw.
And it got worse
And even worse….and so we got off the water.
We managed to get back to the house before the skies opened and it started to pour. I have some video of the rain, which turned into hail along with thunder and lightning. I’ll try and get it posted – Cariboo storms are beautiful but you don’t want to be caught outside in them without shelter.
