the fish magnet

Toronto, 2016.06.12

The Boy has now caught about 4x the fish I have, down in the absurdly beautiful* Tommy Thompson park. He's been doing really well with the ultralight setup I put together for his sister. I think it's his patience that wins the day. While I'm keeping busy taking care of tangles and managing the bait & tackle, he's able to focus and boy does he. I've never seen anyone with such an ability to slowly twitch a worm at the end of five-ten meters of line until something strikes.

*Well, absurdly beautiful for reclaimed land created by smashing up a bunch of houses in the 80's to make way for our craptacular forest of skyscrapers.

The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.
