There is still a bit of daylight between the end of work and the end of the day right now so I rigged up the rod with a beadhead PT and midge combo and went to one of the nearby plains lakes to get in a little water time before the arrival of twilight. The trip paid off with three spunky rainbows falling for my flies. The wind was heavy but there was a nice calm section right up on the dam where the fish were cruising the inside wall of a weed bed. I couldn't see them but they were definitely there. It did not require much distance casting which helped cut down on the wind knots I had to deal with as well.
