Friday Fish Pics – Bellwether Edition

Here’s Bellwether’s Christine Wade with a sunfish (and an all-natural green screen) in West Virginia.

Friday Fish Pics!

2020 is no picnic, but there are a lot of worse ways to wade through it than by taking a kid fishing. Here’s education consultant Cami Anderson doing exactly that with her fantastic son on the Truckee in Northern California.
