  • Shhh...Don't disturb the fish!

    One of my first fishing excursions was with my nephew. I didn't grow up fishing and was already in my early 20's. I was excited to spend the day with him just the two of us (hard to get a youngster to spend the day with a relative). We were going out on the river in a small boat to troll - young smallmouth bass hiding amongst the river's detritus. I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to get an update on my nephew's life and do some bonding with him. "I love you Auntie and I want to visit too, but FISHING IS SERIOUS BUSINESS and we must be QUIET so as not to scare away the fish!" Oh yes...priorities! That was a beautiful experience although not what I had planned...being on the river, casting my line, appreciating nature's bounty...I'm sure you will all agree these are the truly peaceable times. Nothing else compares!
