Jeff, "Go on Kathie, tell him about Joe."
Whit, "What about Joe, where is he?"
Jeff, "Last time I saw him he was in the East Walker River."
Kathie, "I didn't send him after Jeff, it was his own idea."dark montreal

Whit, "Did you kill him?"
Jeff, "He slipped, and fell. When I got there it was too late. It's a mean river."
Whit, "He was trailing you?"
Jeff, "Well you don't go fishing with a 45 in your hand."
From the 1947 movie Out Of The Past

silver doctorMy fishing days began in England, tempting, with maggots and bread paste, small roach, perch, bream and carp with my Father (Michael, see his WWII diary), my Grandfather (Albert) and my Uncle (Len). They were the finest kind.
Now I fish with flies for Nova Scotia's wild trout and salmon.
