EAST CALHOUN — The meeting place was the fishing dock on the southeast shore of Lake Calhoun, across the parkway from Lakewood Cemetery.
But when the two fishermen arrived, it was clear the dock wouldn’t do — not at all. Pounding winds during the solstice storm of a few days earlier had knocked it off its mooring, and the T-shaped wooden platform floated at an angle a few feet offshore.
For the man with the fly rod, the bigger problem was the steady wind blowing out of the northwest. No way to cast into that wind, Scott Seekins judged.
