Plot: The men at the lodge give Red a weekend fly-in fishing trip, using an old emergency fund in a tacklebox under a boat dock. When Dalton finds it, he opens it, only to discover a fish and a scrap of paper. But the wording is all smudged. They suspect that Old Man Sedgewick might know something about it, since it is his stationary. To his disappointment, Red's fishing trip has been cancelled, because it turns out that Old Man Sedgewick had donated the money to charity. Now the lodge has a foster child, whom Dalton plans to have spend the weekend with Red, who is less than enthused. Eventually, the foster child shows up. It turns out to be a very attractive woman named Crystal. Red instantly has a change of heart. Even better, Crystal brought the lodge a check for $500 so they can finally send Red on his planned fishing trip, which has already been booked by Bernice.
