You folks have no idea how blessed you are to be able to fish anytime. In this part of the world it is dangerous. While you are fishing for fish, the crocodiles are fishing for you!
I miss bass, bream, crappie, and catfish fishing. Trout, too, for that matter. Halibut, flounder, redfish, you name it. I miss it terribly. Fishing is the best sport and leisure activity there is next to reading a good book.
I was once a big brother type to a four year old. His dad told his mom "Keep that kid away from me! I wan't nothing to do with him!" Well, you all know what I have to say about that man. Anyway, I bought the boy a small fishing rod and took him over to a pond where I knew there were a lot of bream. I showed him how to cast and let him practice a few times casting and reeling. Then, I put a worm on a hook and let him cast out into the water. It hit and the float immediately went under! He didn't panic. He started reeling in the line with my encouragement. We pulled that little bream out of the water and that boy's eyes looked like halogen headlights they were shining so bright. I cleaned it and his mother cooked it so he had it for lunch. Great day. His first fish.
I Pray Heaven to Bestow The Best of Blessing on THIS HOUSE, and on ALL that shall hereafter Inhabit it. May none but Honest and Wise Men ever rule under This Roof! (John Adams regarding the White House)
Follow the Christ, the King,
Live pure, speak true, right wrong, follow the King--
Else, wherefore born?" (Tennyson)
