Friday Fish Porn – More Merrows! Plus Mr. Commodore!

The family of education writer and TV/documentary producer John Merrow are no strangers to Friday Fish Porn. Today we see his grandson on the Edgartown town pier.  Apparently he was a half-dozen fish in before they stopped to snap a pic.  Good reminder to take a kid fishing while it’s warm out. Here is a guy […]

Friday Fish Porn (And Fish Pics) – All In The Merrow Family

It’s Friday and summertime, that can only mean one thing…. This week we revisit the Merrow family. Longtime education journalist John Merrow is no slouch with a fishing rod – and neither is his wife (or grandkids!).  Here they each are with stripers – released so still swimming around – caught this summer.

Friday Fish — Summer Round-Up

I let the summer fish pictures and fish porn pile up so today we’re going to clean out the cupboard before the weather gets cold.   No coldwater fish though, didn’t anyone catch trout this summer? To start, here’s John Merrow’s granddaughter Valentina.  Seriously, take a kid fishing when you get the chance.  And James Wilcox’s mom is back!    James is CEO at […]

And the winner of the fish porn guessing game is…

Ben Wildavsky of former U.S. News fame, now at the Kauffman Foundation, who correctly identified both John Merrow (pictured left, of PBS and Learning Matters fame) and answered why Rod Paige never invites Merrow out for a little golfing fun (see Ben’s full response in comments).
