Wisconsin opener weekend

I bought a Wisconsin license this year. I am a low budget fisherman, so to drop sixty bucks on a license for another state is a big deal. Then again it seems the trout streams in Wisconsin are a big deal.

For the opener I didn't drive for hours and hours. I didn't wake before dawn. I didn't even put on waders. I spent a couple hours on an open portion of a popular stream throwing spinners with a little boy. It was beautiful. And I nearly got out-fished (we each lost one.)
