I went fishing on the Rivanna River this past weekend at Shadwell, Thomas Jefferson’s birthplace, in search of smallmouth bass. Having caught them in these spots before and some just a few days earlier up stream from this spot I thought it would be no problem.
However in exchange for small mouth bass the river gave me a load of sunfish and bluegill, which in the end was alright with me.
The only companion I brought along was my friend beer. I picked up a pack of these Rolling Rock cans mostly because of their retro design. The taste however did not live up to the looks of the can, I will have to stick with the High Life.
Also a good discussion happening now over at NY Times about the ethics of catching and releasing fish vs keeping them to eat, worth a reading.
