Friday Fish! Candlers On The Water

Matt Candler founded 4.0 Schools to help create innovative school models. It’s working. Candler’s not unknown around here. He’s known for being against the “sucks less” approach to school quality and in a Kevin Bacon-like way he’s one degree removed from Big Red. Here’s his dad and his son out for a day fishing earlier this spring. That’s […]

Friday Fish Porn: Back To Alaska

When James Willcox appears on this blog with a fish – it’s usually a redfish. And as often a redfish his mom, who is almost certainly a better angler than you, caught. She’s below with one caught just this week. But to mix things up he went to Alaska and caught some salmon – including this […]

Friday Fish Porn – Well Not Really, At All.

It’s winter so the fishing has slowed down (hundreds of fish pics here though) but education people are still getting outside and we’re diversifying from just fish pics: Tim Taylor of America Succeeds managed to work some duck hunting into an Arkansas trip. And Ali Fuller of Bellwether took this ibex in Spain earlier this […]

Friday Fish Porn: Bull Session With Steve Mesler

Steve Mesler is, among other things, a Bellwether author, three-time Olympian, member of the U.S. Olympic Committee, an Olympic Gold Medalist, and founder of Classroom Champions (it’s entirely possible he doesn’t introduce himself in that order very much). He can also fish. Here he is earlier this month in Alberta with a bull trout. Bull […]

Friday Fish! Petrilli Returns!

The Petrilli’s took their son fishing and you’ll never believe what happened next! Nico Petrilli’s angling career has been featured here before a few ways. But this fish is a milestone. He got it on the Potomac, near Sycamore Island, so father Mike is proud it’s an “inside the beltway” fish. Hundreds of education people with […]

Friday Fish Porn! Sharks!

Candice Santomauro of NMSI took some time to fish this summer off of Florida’s Space Coast. First she caught this: A few more might make an appetizer? But then, she caught this: Legit! I don’t think we’ve had a shark before. But you can check to be sure in this roster of education people with […]

Friday Fish Porn – Spawn Of Big Red, Plus Weeby On The Water

Regular readers of Friday fish porn will fondly recall the run of Big Red – a big redfish caught by James Willcox’s mom in Mobile Bay. James is the former CEO of Aspire Public Schools and has now founded, just this summer, Strategic Growth Parnters, a Public Benefits Corporation focused on helping high-quality CMOs grow […]

Friday Fish Porn: Kosar V. Fuller, It’s On!

The battle for mayor of Fish Porn is on. Last week we revealed Kevin Kosar’s doomsday device: His new fishing blog and boating articles. A lock on the mayorship? Not so fast. Bellwether’s Ali Fuller. Well, she was unimpressed. So she sent this. It’s not technically a fish. Or really a fish in any sense. It’s […]

Friday Fish Porn – Taylor Succeeds!

By day, Tim Taylor leads America Succeeds, but he’s also a solid fisherman and accomplished wing shooter. He’s been featured on Fish Porn before, for instance here and here and here. I’ve been on the water with him, good person to spend a day outside with. He took his son fishing this summer and there were bent […]

Friday Fish Porn – Tarpon!

Adair Bard is on the Bellwether team – and like a few of us here she likes to get out on the water to fish. Here she is on the Fork in Colorado last year. Her husband Daniel is in Florida for work and got out this week for tarpon on the fly – a […]
