Here it is, my one and only "fishing" picture. Collateral damage from an attempt to catch the giant Northern we thought was lurking off the dock. The Crappie decided to go for a lure that was way too big for it. The little guy could not be revived. Never mind . . .

I just realized that my submission wouldn't count (since I had someone else snap the photo for me), so I'm withdrawing it. Maybe next time.

This is a photo I took of my brother in law and my dog fishing at a campsite on Ham Lake. This is a great example of what the BWCA has to offer, and it was especially fitting for Mark who loves to fish and who was experiencing a few minutes away from his young kids who we brought with us. I think that Clancy, the dog, was just as excited to fish as Mark was.

My husband and I spent 5 days with another couple on Lake Two at a campsite we nicknamed "Chicken Wing." I imagine it is quite a popular campsite but this was my first trip to the BWCA and only the second and third time for the boys. My friend Sarah caught this nice bass in the little cove behind our camp and I was more than happy to photograph the moment for her. This was May 26, 2009, a chilly and rainy day but it didn't stop us from fishing.

Joy is a great teacher, but so is dispair. Wonder is a great teacher, but so is confusion. Hope is a great teacher, but so is disillusionment. And life is a great teacher, but so is death. To deny yourself any of those in any aspect is not experiencing life totally.
