Reel it in, sorry to hear you lost some flies. I have fished with Popeye for well over 40 years, that's right, he is my younger brother, and he never knowingly screws someone else up, nor do I, nor does anyone else on this site. Last I knew Winni was a pretty big lake. If you see someone fighting a fish, no less triples, get the hell out of the way. Everyone here will do the same for you. And don't skank this site up with your whining. If you are going to do that go to NHsportsman.com, it is already screwed by guys like you.
