“Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after”*
Here is a nostalgic mid-week look back at our grandfather Bunker Cameron holding a garpike in the 1920s. Bunker liked nothing better than fishing and he was quite accomplished. He was a member of a private club on North Hero Island (or was it South Hero?) on Lake Champlain and spent a lot of time there over the years. He went to Florida and did some deep sea fishing, but his heart was always in his home state of Vermont.
Although I do not fish, I would like nothing better than to be on North Hero Island in Vermont right now. However, I am in hot and sticky flyover country–C’est la vie!
Par for the course.
And apropos of something: “It is better to sit in a boat thinking about God than to sit in church thinking about fishing.” As someone (not Thoreau) somewhere said.
