A Great Year Fishing

Apr 18

On Saturday, My Dad is going with his friends fly fishing in
the Wolf River. He said that the Walleye are running.
Running means that the fish are passing through the river
in large groups now.

I like fly fishing. I like the boots. I like wearing the
fly fishing boots in the stream near us, because they
are waterproof and so big. I like to look at all the
creatures that live in stream near us when I wear
the boots.

Stinky Sunfish

As I mentioned to you yesterday, I am starting a Great Year LIST for
WISCONSIN FISH. I know I said I am including any Wisconsin fish I
eat in the list. Yuck! I did not think about seeing one of the fish
on my list carried away by Myles. He found a dead,
ORANGE SPOTTED SUNFISH by the side of the Kickapoo River and was
carrying it around in his mouth!

I chased after Myles and told him to drop the fish, but that made him only run faster. Finally, I yelled “Yummies! Yummies!,” and he stopped
in his tracks and turned around. YUMMIES are the word we taught him for
snacks, or treats.

Myles walked up to me with the fish in his mouth and then sat politely
in front of me waiting for me to give him a snack! Then I said “Drop It!”
and he carefully let the fish fall out of his mouth onto the rocks.
I picked up the rotten fish by the tail and threw it into the river.

Jezebel’s Trout Farm

Mar 29

troutfarm Tonight we are eating fish! I love fish. My favorite place to buy fish is from my friend Jezebel’s trout farm. She lives down the hill from my farm. They raise rainbow trout on their farm as well many kinds of vegetables and raspberries. Jezebel’s Mom has a small greenhouse where she grows beautiful flowers for the tourists to buy and bring back to their gardens.

Someday Jezebel and I want to open our own flowers market we would invite farmer’s from all over the Kickapoo Valley to sell their flowers there.

I took a photograph of Jezebel’s trout farm. Did you know that it is not
proper to take a picture of the Amish people? It’s true. That is why I only photograph of farm animals, gardens, and buildings whenever I take pictures of Amish Farms for my photo album.

Stinky fish breath

Eeeew! Today, Myles jumped in the stream and got a fish. He was carrying the fish in his mouth everywhere. It was very funny! He even put the fish down on the rug by my dad’s favorite chair in our living room. His breath stinks like a million billion fish, but I still love him. And for some reason all the stinkiness made me laugh uncontrollably.
