I had a chance to go to a pond where I could take the canoe. This is an opportunity not to be missed so the canoe, anchors, paddle and fishing equipment went into the truck, and then I was off to the pond. I had to park about 20 yards from the pond so I got all the stuff into the canoe and hauled it near the pond. I always try to make a few casts to make sure there are no fish near the shore where the canoe will go in. The two rods had a black boa yarn fly and a palmer chenille fly on them.
