Artist's Description

THIS IS A SELF PORTRAIT OF ONE OF THE MANY PERSONALITIES THAT ARE WITHIN ME. THIS PART OF ME IS WHAT I CALL, “I THE FISHERMAN”. THE OTHER PARTS INCLUDE THINGS LIKE I THE TARGET SHOOTER, I THE PHOTOGRAPHER, I THE HANDIMAN, I THE CARPENTER, I THE STOCK MAKER. WELL,,,,, IT GOES ON FROM THERE, BUT YOU SHOULD GET THE MESSAGE. WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT PERSONALITIES WITHIN EACH OF US. THEY JUST DON’T ALL COME OUT AT ONCE. AT LEAST I HOPE THEY DON’T, OTHERWISE, WE WOULD ALL BE SCREWED UP. WHEN, I THE FISHERMAN IS COMMANDING THE SCENE, I LIKE TO BAIT FISH MORE THAN ANY OTHER TYPE OF FISHING. BE FROM THE BANK, OR FROM MY 17 FOOT BOAT, TO ME BAIT FISHING IS THE LEAST PHYSICALLY EXHERTIVE AND JUST AS REWARDING AS FLY FISHING OR CASTING A LURE, OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,WELL, I WOULD RATHER PUT OUT A CHUNK OF BAIT AND LET THE FISH COME TO PAPPA. I’VE ONLY EVER CAUGHT ONE BLACK BASS ON A LURE, ONE SMALL MOUTH BASS ON A LURE, SEVERL DOZEN TROUT ON LURES, ONE VERY SMALL STRIPED BASS ON A LURE, IN FACT HE WAS SO SMALL THE LURE WAS BIGGER THAN HE WAS. BUT MY SMALLEST FISH EVER CAME ON A PIECE OF ANCHOVIE. I WAS USING A NUMBER 6/0 HOOK AND THE STRIPER WAS ONLY THREE INCHES LONG. I HOOKED HIM SIDEWAYS, CHEEK TO CHEEK. MY BIGGEST FISH TO DATE WAS A 96 OR SO INCH STURGEON THAT WEIGHED AROUND 250 POUNDS. I HOPE I NEVER CATCH ONE THAT BIG EVER AGAIN. I SET MY CAMERA ON A ROCK THAT WAS NEAR BY AND SET THE TIMER ON THE SHUTTER, WHICH JUST DID GIVE ME TIME TO GET BACK TO THE CHAIR AND SIT DOWN, WITHOUT BREAKING ANY BONES.
