It was a lame movie, starring Jennifer Garner’s lips. And it’s not the nicest thing to do to a fish. But we’ve got the duck pond (well, actually, a goose, turtle and fish pond, and if we don’t get some significant rain soon, it won’t be any kind of pond before too long), and let me just say, that those fish that live there? They got more excitement today than they’ve had in, well, I’m guessing years. As soon as Adam cast his line, swarms of them were racing toward his neon-green lure. Clearly, they were starved for stimulation. And stimulation they got.
After he caught the first one, there were five more that followed. And this in a period of not more than 20 minutes. If catch and release is cruel, then these fish don’t want us to be nice.
