Gone Fishin' 2!!

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.  ~John Buchan

Daddy and I went fishing again....back to his fishing cabin in NC.  He started going there with his Mom, Dad and brothers and sisters when he was just a small boy!  It's a wonderful place, although 'progress' is slowly taking over the secluded banks with amazing, and in some cases obscene houses!  I love the huge cypress trees and knees and spanish moss!  It's a place to go to think, enjoy, and relive old memories!

I took some pictures to share... (click to see full screen!)

Do you see the people?? I have always seen the cypress knees as people each one is an individual....look closely!

It was such a beautiful day!!  This guy got this gar while we were there and enjoyed it while we fished near by!

...and we found a hiding place for something eating clams.....look at all that loot!!

From a distance......

...zoomed in!!

Daddy won the prize of the day with his 3 pounder!!  Finally Bass in the freezer!!

These are maple tree 'helicopters'!!  They are always red down there, and look like the tree is in bloom!!

We had a great day....a lot of activity and a lot of bites!! And as you can see the weather was BEAUTIFUL!!  I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!!



  1. I've got one of those helicopter pictures as my desktop now. Beautiful! I'm glad y'all got a lot of action!


  2. Thank you so much for sharing these photos. We don't see anything like this here in California. I see the people too :-) Fascinating!
    Thank you so much for sending a card to my nephew. I hope he's overwhelmed with all the love that is pouring his way.
