The Fishing Show
My husband likes to watch fishing shows on TV, the ones which feature big boats, fly in lodges, expensive lures and hosts who endorse a lot of products. They always catch a dream fish or two which they either release or serve as a shore lunch with a must-buy coating mix and a pint of cooking oil.
I watched a fishing show at a small reservoir in the city on a drizzy morning last week. Four Great Blue Herons on one bank...
...and four patient fishers on the other bank. (only two pictured here) I watched for thirty minutes or more and saw only one fish caught.
No lure, no boat, no big trip. But a good shore lunch just the same.
