Nothing better than seeing the water at the end of the portage. Legs aching, back a little sore. You place the canoe down and sit back to have a nice sip of cool refreshing water.
That’s when it happens. You remember that you had been fishing this morning at your site. In your rush to get packed for that day it’s still resting on the white pine near the shore. What do you do?
Some people would leave it and try to retrieve it on the return trip. If you’re us you redo the portage, paddle back to your site and sheepishly retrieve your fishing rod. Luckily it wasn’t to far back.
