Bemidji,MN While Jim and Ron were fishing, Sandi and Mary attended a fall festival held at a nearby ski resort. Fishing started out great. Jim caught a fish on his first cast. After a while, though, bites were fewer. Jim decided to try out a brand new lure he had recently purchased. He trolled for a while, giving the new lure a fair chance before pulling it back in. It was then he discovered he had never removed the protective plastic cover on the hook. The fish were all quite safe.
It was a beautiful fall day so the festival Sandi and Mary went to was well attended. They saw a wood carver, viewed an amazing art display, smelled some wonderful goat milk soaps, tasted some caramel corn puffs (interesting), watched a blacksmith do his thing, and wandered through the grounds. It was very nice.
