Fishing With Larry

Uncle Larry was the exact opposite of my father, who by the way can’t swim.

As a matter of discourse my father would say, “You’re so much like my brother.”

Who would often arrive unannounced in an airstream and buy Leinekugals by the case because he couldn’t get it in Boston.

So there I sat in a boat up North with my drill sergeant Uncle.

He had a foul proof fishing method he stated. Sprinkle fish food the kind you would place in the aquarium to feed your goldfish and wait until they came.

I could have been standing on the shore and known this was a bad method.

Our Uncle’s can teach us things our fathers can’t.

About Me

My photo
Welcome to my Blogs. My name is Thomas Murphy and I love the forest and wildlife areas of Wisconsin and would like to share my thoughts and the pictures I have taken of the natural areas of Wisconsin. Come share in my collection of what I feel to some of the finest scenes and images of the forests, lakes, rivers and marshes that Wisconsin has to offer. I like to go to pristine and secluded areas where nature resides quietly and I feel the resulting “lost” images are profoundly unique. I am usually “in the moment” when I take these pictures. When I say in the moment I mean a sense of excitement often precedes what my eye captures through the camera. I never stage these shots but seem to be in the right place and time when I shoot them. And when I transfer them from my camera and view them on my computer screen I realize a sense of surrealism that resonates with me yet again to the time they were taken and exemplify the beauty of nature. Please peruse my sites and experience the beauty of being there as I did.
