August Fishing

This last week was a fun one, in spite of some nerve wracking wind, we wanted to show you a couple of photo's of happy anglers.

Nila has never fly fished before and of course she caught the largest rainbow of the day.  I am not kidding when I say this happens quite frequently____ why is that?  We all have our theories, but we think it has something to do with listening.  Are women better listeners?  I know I am opening up a can of worms here, at least a complex, slightly opinionated, subject.  Do we learn from listening, or talking?  Even in nature we tend to learn by listening.  Sometimes we miss what is right in front of us because we are so intent upon being heard. No conclusions drawn here, just happy we have both, talkers and listeners. 

Here is another happy angler from last week.  Quite a different type of joy shown here; more of a "happy to be alive" sort of expression.  David is certainly enjoying the moment and is very content with this beautiful rainbow.  In spite of the weather, everyone managed to find something enjoyable about the week and a good time was had by all.

Have you noticed how difficult it is, during these days of photographic high technology, to take a bad photograph? Everyone is a photographer and so many photographs are first rate.  It is hard to go wrong with a simple point and shoot camera.  We use them in East Africa and we use them in Alaska and so many of the photographs are outstanding.  Sometimes one is just lucky, but mostly what you see is exactly what you get.  In this case a basket of beautiful Cloud Berries picked by Cassandra and Scott.
