    C&R'd my big white and maroon Nike umbrella Saturday at Munn lake. The wind caught it, I released it while in a downpour chironomiding. It blew across the surface for 20' and almost made it to my buddy Dave before it tipped over and sank within two seconds! I tried to dredge the bottom with a heavy streamer w/split shots, no luck. Somewhere by the houses to the right if standing on the launch a quarter of the way down the lake. Huge reward!

    So were you using it to stay dry for as a sail?

    Steve has never been known to be able to Multi-task it was a Kodak moment, but it did not stop us for fishing over 8 hrs in the pouring down rain (who said we was smart) Damn we caught fish too just another day on the water. I think we are going for the record for the last 1.5 months we have fish in the rain every weekend

    With all the rain we have been having, don't expect to see that umbrella until summer !
