Oh, Brother!

Posted by MNAngler On November - 22 - 2009

A few weeks ago, I got an email from my brother, who is also an avid angler. It was about the time I wrote the Fitovers sunglass review and he remarked that I was really getting desperate for things to blog about. He said I needed to go fishing more.

Of course, he was right. The problem, though, was that October was a really horrible month for weather in Minnesota. It rained something like 23 out of 31 days. And the nice days had to be spent either working my day job or raking wet leaves.

Time is running short in the open water season and now that Daylight Savings Time has ended, the weekends are the only days with any daylight to be able to fish in. I might be hard pressed to get out again before the snow flies.

But given this is a fishing blog, I figured I should post pictures of fish every so often. So here are a few pics of my brother and some of his fish. He lives in Boulder and goes out often in his float tube.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, the next picture of me with a fish will probably be on the ice.
