Fine, cold October weather in September. All alone with the dog. Will cut more firewood, but fishing alone with the puppy is nearly impossible.
Update: I was fighting a horrible sinus cold, so I had a sauna and jumped into the lake -- nearly died. Then I dropped a vital piece of steel in the lake, and the next day I had to go snorkelling -- nearly died. I finally went fishing in the exact place the fanatic neighbour goes -- nothing. Still got this horrible cold.
