Tim and I had a pretty good day at the DH on Tuesday.  We didn’t get much action until about 12:45.  We wound up with around a dozen for each of us, the biggest being a egg-filled Brookie.  We mainly caught them on hare’s ears, golden Pat’s rubber legs, and “UV2 Count Choculas” in the ripples and deep pools.  Hope to make it back on Monday.
