Fishing Preparedness

Wise Alaskans appreciate preparedness.

My children, I am pleased to announce, are actively applying the preparedness lessons they have learned.

(Make a note – that sentence did not include the word “appropriately.”)

For example, one can never predict exactly what one might encounter when fishing. It is, therefore, prudent to anticipate a variety of circumstances.

I’m not exactly sure what my son thought he might encounter this afternoon when he headed out to the tiny little pond on his grandparents ranch to fish for catfish with his father.

Clearly he wasn’t anticipating falling in the pond. Whatever he was expecting I’m assuming he felt prepared.


Or at least really, really cool.

I think we’ll revisit the lesson on appropriate flotation devices.
