More Progress

A few more shots of my time fishing in Progress, Mississippi with my dad and Double D. I think I've found a new hobby!
Double D wearing his Texas Ranger colors.
I ask you, could we have fished at a more beautiful site? My dad knows the right people!

Daddy trying to get the hook out of a bream's mouth.

One of the few photos you'll ever see of me. Yuck!
Double D took this with his phone. I was the only one to catch a catfish that day.
He was so excited and proud.

Close-up of my catch. All the fish were released back into the lake.
Hopefully they weren't too traumatized.

That is an idyllic spot for fishing or just sitting and looking, and congrats on your catch.

That fish was a beauty, and the setting for the day was perfectly lovely. The fall colors reflecting in the still water...so peaceful.

There is nothing yuck about your photo. You are the typical photographer, my heart; always wanting to be the photographer and not be photographed. Oh, you are adorable!!!!!

Nice work!

Fishing with my Dad are among my most precious memories. His favorite joke was an old one: "Have you ever seen a catfish?" "Yes, sir." "How did he hold his pole?"

Cracked himself up every time.

Terri Buster said...

It's a lovely spot for an afternoon of fishing...especially with your dad. Great catch!

What a lovely spot to go fishing - and good company too. You have beautiful skin Gail, you are beautiful! Catch and release fishing must be much more pleasant than catch and kill.

So peaceful and serene! Fishing as I remember is very relaxing.

I also know how to skin a catfish, though I've not done it myself! Sure was a whopper you caught!

It does look like a good place to fish - although the cat-fish looks less pleased about the situation!
