    Yeah, we kind of got off-topic some. Easy to do.

    I think this is a cute little home on the river.

    Never ever owned any boats, although had the pleasure of sailing in the 1,000 Islands in Ontario, Canada. Then took Ferry boats in the Maritimes, Qu├ębec on trips. Home in Scotland, it's ferries galore.

    However, we'd hope to rent a boat for a day's sailing on The Clyde in our retirement. As husband passed away in 2022, that plan is now scuppered. Afterall, he was the Naval specialist. Granted, I know how to drive, but on land and not on water...

    Fishing growing up was a huge Spring/Summer feature. I got a heavy 13 pounder fish, known as a Largemouth Bass. As Papa owned the "Fishing/Hunting" License, he won the trophy and his name was put on it. Sadly, it was sent back when he died. No memories of my triumphant fishing moment at 7 years old. Bummer!

    The best and funniest time we had fishing with Papa and Gramps. It was our last time altogether as Gramps died the summer of 69. Gramps had funky fishing lines, with weights and hooks, about 2 feet apart.

    Learned how to get fresh bait on each, a total of 3 lines, so roughly 30. Then, how to cast those lines to reach the other side of the lake. Man that was the best catch of Catfish ever. Nighttime by the fire, hearing stories of yesteryear while waiting for fish to bite!

    Where do you catch all those beautiful fish? Tex, what part of the country? Pretty water in the photo above. I would filet that fish, and do some hush puppies too. :)
