catch of the day

Yesterday, I gathered up the "Ugly Stick" fishing rod my younger son gave me for my birthday and the two of us went fishing. I don't care much for hurting or disturbing other critters for some personal satisfaction, but the company was good and the day was beautiful and I was willing to commit a crime.

We both caught several small pumpkinseed sun fish and threw them back, all the while kidding that we were just catching the same dumb fish over and over again.

It was a nice, if disproportionately tiring, outing, probably the last of its kind I will ever make.

For my own purposes, the adventure left me feeling that there was nothing wrong with fishing as long as you didn't have to catch any fish.
