Today I've determined that no matter what, I'll take my lunch on the water somewhere. All my work is on or near water. Today lunch found me in Walloon, on lovely Walloon Lake. Walloon Lake is a bastion of old-style up north summer cottages. Hemingway had a cottage there. They say Michael Moore does. I've heard Jeff Daniels does too, but who knows? Walloon Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in Michigan, period- from a main body sprawls radiating arms, its crystal clear waters run about 100 feet deep. It hosts good populations of trout and smallmouth bass. I grabbed two slices of pizza at the general store, scarfed them down, donned my waders, grabbed my 8 weight and flies and waded out at the public beach. While doing this I finalized another customer appointment for 4 pm. This gave me 45 minutes before I had to leave.
