For the first time in my life, I am the proud owner of my own fishing pole, Dorthea Jane, and a fishing license! I have yet to catch a fish but I have decided that I am excellent at casting my line.
Calhoun and I had planned on going canoeing and fishing earlier in the week but it was rainy (I knitted instead) - but we made it out yesterday evening. Calhoun loaded the canoe onto the car, we stopped along the way to get me a pole and a license and made it to Lake Elmo a little before 8.

We paddled out and enjoyed the sunset on the lake.

My fishing goals for the summer are to:
(1) bait my own hook
(2) catch a fish
(3) take the fish off the line
(4) filet the fish
