Not all fishing is created equal.
Today the equipment includes rods and reels. Waders and bright artificial “flies” hooked to a vest decorate a solitary man along a trout stream. One or two humans share silence watching lines from opposite sides of a small boat.
In our modern era the incentive can be as much about going to a quiet place, enjoying the scenery and fresh air as much as bringing home supper.
This sculpture on a college campus reminds us of a distant past. Success meant a protein addition to parched corn. At least one thing remains the same. Technique is passed from one generation to another by imitation.
Fresh fish for supper?
You can get a whiff of a Friday fish fry in Starr Tree Farm. Available as ebook or paperback from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
