I Did My Part for Sustainable Fishing and It Was Delicious!

Consider this great experience gift for your next Father’s Day or other family event!

My parents live in Minnesota, and ever since I can remember, they loved to fish. After ten years in the Pacific Northwest, it finally occurred to me to take my Baba [1] fishing here, given the abundant fish and all. I hadn’t gone fishing on my own in about ten years, and didn’t own a boat or equipment, so we hired a guide.

K and I had heard through the grapevine that bass and walleye were “🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥” in Potholes Reservoir and Moses Lake this time of year! We booked with Shelby Ross of Ross Outdoor Adventures last minute.

They even acknowledged the history of printing in East Asia far pre-dating western printing.

I think the tourists are actually paying more attention in the exhibits without their cameras, though..
