Yesterday we picked and Canned some Carrots and Green Beans out of our Garden,plus dried some Hot Peppers.

Told my wife I was going fishing today.She asked
if I thought this was wise considering how sick I've been.I told her I just can't stay cooped up in the house this is something I have to learn to live with I'm going.

Decided I needed some New Line on my Reel.I go to one Shop they are not open.Go to another Shop get New 2# Test put on,grabed couple Lures.

Went on down to the river thought its plenty early I'll miss the Aluminum Hatch.I was a bit concerned there was nobody down there considering its Saturday,wondering if the Fish were Biting.

Get below one riffle.Well do I want to use Lures or Bait? Well I just want Supper I'll go with Bait.Had some Yellow Power Bait but the Lid had came off and it was dried up.So I'll use White.Bait up cast out.Not really where I want it,Oh Heck I have a Fish on!Nice Rainbow,put it on the Stringer.Four more cast Limit of Four on my Stringer,made it back Home by 9AM.

I have been all over the country for the railroad, and Missouri was one of the better places I have been. I don't remember all the little towns in the summer I was there, but very nice people and very similar to my home state of Maine. I am not surprised you found a slice of heaven there.

Summit
Washington
Hermann

I think these were some of the towns we worked in along side the river on the UP Line there.
