Wishing I Was Fishing in the BWCA

     The fish are biting on Saganaga and I am wishing I was out fishing. Instead I’ve been strengthening my reel in wrists painting and playing volleyball. My daughter Abby is on a volleyball team that will be competing in the Minnesota Star of the North Games in St. Paul next weekend and I’m the coach of the team.

     I love coaching volleyball but I’d much rather be doing it in the dead of winter than on a warm summer day. There’s something about being cooped up in a dark gym when the sun is shining outside, it just doesn’t feel right. Two more practices and the tournament this weekend will be the end of stuffy gyms for me this summer.

     Luckily I live vicariously through the fishing expeditions of my ever helpful crew member Mark who always has his camera along and lately a pretty model too.  They’ve been spending some time fishing in the Boundary Waters and catching fish too.  Thanks Mark and Julie!
