I don’t know if fish bite better in the fog, but who cares. Fishing isn’t always about catching fish.

The fog was so thick on Lake Nockamixon very early one morning that you couldn’t see the water. I walked around to check it out and happened upon someone who got there before me. He was comfortably relaxed with two poles in the water waiting for a perch or a bass to take the bait.

A union carpenter his whole life before retirement meant being out in cold weather was no big deal for him. Fog? Bring it on.

The best part he told me is no one telling him what to do.
