Father's Day Wadeapalooza!

My friend and fishing buddy Dan (who is also known as Pondboy) and I got together and planned a day of wading and exploring the Kiswaukee River in north western Illinois to take place on Dan's annual day to do whatever he wants; Father's Day.

I restrung my spinning reel with fresh Triline 6# mono and tied on a #4 Gamakatsu Octopus Circle Hook and set up a button pattern of small B and BB sized split-shot to weigh down the line and thus the bait. Finally a small Thill spring float completed my river float rig. I was ready to fish, now I needed to figure out what time to go to bed when I am meeting Pondboy at his house at 3:30 AM.

Once I realized what was going on when my alarm went off in the two o'clock hour I jumped into the shower and then quickly on my way out the door.
