Wisconsin Trip #8: Memorial Day/Brookies for George
For the long Memorial Day weekend, we traveled to a different part of Wisconsin from our usual fishing area. Although we tried to leave home early enough to beat the traffic, we got stuck in Milwaukee. Which meant we had to stop at Cabela’s…
The “Sand” region of Wisconsin is beautiful and filled with native brook trout streams. Not only are brook trout my favorite little fish, they live in beautiful water. I brought my bamboo rod, which was handmade by our TU friend George who passed away earlier this month. Each brookie I caught with the rod, I thought of George and how lucky I was to be out fishing.
I have no fishing photos since Chef and I were on separate parts of the stream. Brook trout are way too excited for pictures without help. Even the little guys splash around like crazy!
But I did manage to take a photo of our cool new tent. It kept us safe and dry even amid thunderstorms and a tornado warning. Chef is cooking a delicious breakfast for us on our last morning:
