Artist Charles Weiss!
Famous wildlife and fish artist, Charles Weiss, joined Hedrik and me today for a day of fishing. It was one of the most enjoyable days on the water I've had in a long time. Constant laughter, stories, jokes. Great time to say the least.
Not only was the chit-chat good, but fishing was too! We moved seven total, including two caught: 28" by Hedrik and 43" by me. The 43" makes #16. It was caught in a classic river location where a smaller river meets a larger one. And (no surprise) the big male fell to a double 10 (Dinnerbell)!
Charles will join me (along with J Carroll of the Ottawa Chapter) again tomorrow on the Rideau. Hopefully Charles (and J) can get at least one tomorrow!
