Friday Fish Porn! Big Sky Fish & Book Edition

In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing. We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others. He told us about Christ’s disciples being fishermen, and we were left to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen and that John, the favorite, was a dry-fly fisherman. – Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It.*

This might be the most literate fish porn ever. Education consultant Simmons Lettre pops up here from time to time (including this ridiculousness). Below here’s one from a few weeks ago, the result of a wind blown Montana trip.

Do you want to see more pics of fish, or education people with fish? Here are hundreds. Send me yours.

*River Runs Through It is a popular book, and a lovely one, helped in no small part by a successful film. But in this season when wildfire is in the news I’d suggest Young Men and Fire if you’re looking for a summer read. It’s about the 1949 Mann Gulch fire.
