A Fishing They Did Go!

Before reading this (or gazing at the photos in this post), maybe I should advise you to read the post below this one first as it gives a little bit of information about what's what here.

Actually, as I was writing the other post, unbeknownst to me, Jenn-Jenn was sending me 16 more photos of their fishing expedition earlier this evening to Howard Dam!

So, because I really enjoyed seeing these pictures and of course, I was certain you too would enjoy them almost as much as I did, I'm gonna post them here now for everyone's enjoyment!
Maya and "Big Boy" Curtis -fishing at Howard Dam.

Here's Curtis, showing off his catch.

And this is his sister, Emmy Jo, with a catch.

Another of Emmy Jo's catch.

And, again -Emmy Jo!

This is Gabby -the middle child showing off her prowess with the fishing rod.

Another of Gabby.

Gabby, again.

Curtis -teasing his girlfriend, Cassandra!

A little more teasing going on here.

Somebody caught something -was it Curtis or Maya?

Maya caught something by the looks of things.

Maya and Curtis -surveying the catch.

Maya -doing what she does best -showing off!

Proud as a peacock, isn't she?

Curtis and Maya and the fish!

Seeing all these pictures and the big smiles on everyone's faces brought back lots of memories to me of the times when I was a kid and my Uncle Albin -or Uncle Butch as he was usually called -used to take me fishing with him. We would go to Spring Creek though where it runs across Rockview State Penitentiary Grounds outside of Bellefonte when my aunt and uncle would be here for their vacation and when I would go to their home for several weeks during my summer vacations, we would often go to the stream that runs through (or past) Lottsville, PA. Sorry but I don't remember for sure the name of that stream but I think it may have been Little Broken Straw. What I do remember the best about those times was having had so much fun going fishing and I'm betting, just as I remember those adventures today, that in years to come, this will definitely rank right up there in Maya's book of fun days and big adventures!

Looks like they all had good fun. Good to see the family all together.

I have also read your last post and feel that I am going through an arid time with blogging lately....... not knowing what to blog about.
I think its something we all go through from time to time.
Always good to see a post from you though.

Those are such fun pictures! Brings back memories for me too... of fishing with my family on any one of the nearby lakes in this area. Fun times.
