Well, at least a few of us have decided it is spring. Snow came to many of us just to remind us that winter isn't far away. Here in Iowa we always wait until the Girls State basketball tournament is over this next week. In the middle 50's a snow storm trapped over 12,000 people at the auditorium where it was being held, holding all hostage until city crews could get the streets cleared for them to leave for two days. It is time to get the warm weather toys out and get ready to play.
Thousands of Snow Geese land on a small pond.
Light breaks as I arrive to fish for some trout
The fog got thicker for a bit
It was so foggy when I arrived at the pond I couldn't see across.I got my poles in the water, each with a half of a worm and waited. Watching the lines, one barely moved in toward me and then back out. It didn't even jiggle the tip. I held it up higher and waited. When the line came in again I reeled in a little slack and held steady. Soon the line shot across the lake and bent my pole. The first fish is always the best. I sat and waited for more snapping pictures as the sun barely melted away the fog. In a couple of hours I had my limit and was ready to head home for a healthy lunch.
