Art - Fishing Pictures - Is There Anything More Calming Than Fishing

Updated on April 23, 2016

Fishing Stuff

Fishing stuff, like other collections, is hard to dispose of.

You don't get rid of your first fishing pole. You have fond memories of your first Zebco 202 reel. I remember getting my first fishing pole, way back in 1976 or so. I was still young enough to be totally blown away by the present from my sister's husband.

He showed me how to fish, and I spent the rest of that summer, hiking through woods and trails and finding spots along the Minnesota River to fish for anything that would take the hook.


Fishing was a fun thing to do. It got me out of the house and I didn't get into trouble when I fished. There were other people who fished and would show me their methods of casting and how to bait the hook their way.

I did catch fish, although the one summer, I would go fishing until I caught a fish and then I would go home.

I Recall

As I recall that summer, I remember that I was mostly catching walleyes, bullheads and an occasional carp. I did catch a bass, once.

I don't have the same enthusiasm anymore for fishing, but my husband loves to spend a lot of time fishing and my children have taught their children to like to fish.

It's okay. They can do it.

Ice Fishing

My husband is an ice fisherman. He still fishes in the summer months, but his main focus is going to his fish house and fishing for winter fish.

I, draw the line. I do not feel safe winter fishing. You are on a large surface of frozen lake, with a small 8 x 12 house that is firmly parked on the ice. There are holes inside the house on the floor and holes are drilled through the ice, so you can drop a fishing line through the hole and fish.

It used to be fun, but I have developed a fear of the ice cracking. It's like being afraid of heights, only I am afraid of the ice.

Maybe Someday I Will Be Okay With It

Perhaps, someday, I will be comfortable to be out on the ice, but, until then, I will be satisfied with merely having things that remind me of fishing, like my pictures of fishing.
