“The Fishing Pictures”

We go to the cottage usually every year in July to be with my husband’s parents. It’s about a 6 hour drive North-East of here to a beautiful spot on the Ottawa River where there is an abundance of fresh air, and fresh water – for playing, relaxing and enjoying nature. It’s remote enough to be out of touch from the rat race for a time without being too far out into the wilderness with no contact at all with the outside world.
This brings to mind those fishing shows my husband would occasionally watch in which they would highlight different styles of fishing like Bass Fishing or Fly Fishing etc. His favourite was when the hosts would journey to the remotest parts of Northern Canada and visit the wildest lakes and rivers up there in hopes of catching a Northern beauty for all to relish. Of course the show always ended in a successful fishing trip for the sake of television. Although, I’d imagine, that not all such trips end in total success.
One thing I will always marvel at is why they always let the fish go on those shows. Why would they go to the trouble of getting to such a faraway place and spend hours out there on the lake or river, and then when they finally catch a fish, they let it GO!!! I suppose if you’re only going out to catch Fishing Pictures to display for your friends and memory, it does make some sense. But I still cringe every time I watch those guys let a great looking (and probably great tasting too) fish go.
About the cottage, we have never gone fishing there ourselves. But we have heard that there are some nice sized catfish in particular to be caught in the waters of the Ottawa. Maybe this year we will take our fishing poles and spend some time out on the pier or nearby launches casting for a nice catch. But if we do catch anything, I am not letting it go!
