    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
