With all this grim news about the economy and Detroit and swine flu of late, we thought we’d share a little chuckle we received yesterday.
Jason Davis wrote in looking to find out where he could buy a copy of the May issue. You see, he sent us a picture of his daughter, Lauren, for one of the articles. Lauren’s all of 8 years old, but is daddy’s little fisherlady. In the photo we ran on p. 62 of the 132-page edition, she’s holding a shad she caught on the Columbia near Kalama.
“She is an avid shadder, but only to catch even bigger fish — she likes the oversize” sturgeon, Jason told us when he emailed the shot.
Her goal, he details, is a cover.
We have no doubt that’ll happen, but unfortunately, it might be a little while as pa’s summer plans recently got rearranged.
“I have to travel overseas for 90 days for the new job. Gonna miss all my summer-run/Deep River/Buoy 10 fun this year, I guess,” Jason wrote us.
“Lauren is not to happy about it,” he adds. “She gave me the line last night that I was cutting into HER fishing time with the new job and that just wasn’t gonna work for her, quote unquote.”
