Fishing

I did end up fishing today.  It has been a helluva long time since I last went, and I had forgotten how nice it is!  I went with my son and it was a really nice time.  I am truly thinking I will do more of it this year.

I didn't do anything fancy this time, just casting off a dock, but it made me feel really good!  We didn't catch much... A few panfish and a few catfish, and we released them back as neither of us were in the mood to do any cleaning.  It was just about relaxing.  The catfish are always interesting to mess around with, especially.  I like holding them and looking at their very interesting body design... I have always found them especially pretty as a type of fish.  Looking at their gills and their fins is always enjoyable.  A fellow there showed us a few flies he had tied, and said that the local Cabellas offers a fly making class.  My son and I thought maybe we would see about joining the class, it could be a lot of fun.
