Let's Go Fishing...

Fishing is a year round pursuit here in Minnesota.  During the spring, summer, and fall a favorite pastime of many is sitting on the dock with fishing pole in hand or sitting in the boat on one of our 10,000 lakes.  And fishing is for men and women and boys and girls of all ages.  Just look at this little boy and his fishing pole - the image is from the Wonder and Joy stamp set from The Angel Company.  Once again I used my copics to color it.

We also fish during the winter time; we don't let the snow and cold come between us and the fish!  It's called ice fishing.  According to Wikipedia (a favorite source of mine), "ice fishing is the practice of catching fish with lines and fish hooks or spears through an opening in the ice on a frozen body of water. Ice anglers may sit on the stool in the open on a frozen lake, or in a heated cabin on the ice, some with bunks and amenities."

This little owl by leearthaus is enjoying his time on the ice!

Even Rocky and Bullwinkle like to ice fish - just ask Kathyrn Nordstrom!!

And look at this foggy, fishing day on the lake that was captured so well by Ontography.

So, any one want to go fishing?

Thanks for stopping by.
