Catch and Release

Do you know anyone who has caught a fish every month, regardless of weather, for more then eight years? I do and I can tell you I worry each month until that month's fish has been snagged. For many years I was his secretary and I would make sure his schedule allowed for plenty of time at the end of each month to "practice fishing" so he would be at the top of his game by the first of the month. He thinks nothing of donning his waders over his three-piece suit and tossing a line. I wonder if it has occurred to him that he is now catching the trillionth great-grandfish of the first fish he caught?  Besides tying his own flies (can't image what he says to the flies to make them lie down long enough to be tied up), he also keeps a log of where, the time of day, and the bait he used to catch each fish -- geez, lots of bookkeeping involved in fishing, who knew?  When Stampin Dragons Designs recently released the image of Rupert fishing, it was a must have.  Be sure to "catch" the blogs of my fellow team members to see this week's card.

  15. Beautiful Card and story Tammy, isn't it funny how the smallest of things can bring back such lovely memories. I don't think there would be too many fisherman out there keeping such a exact record of their adventures.
