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 – On The Fork Again

Simmons Lettre and Ted Preston found themselves in Colorado this week for meetings. Fall is the best fly fishing so they went out with Taylor Creek to float some water you can’t reach from shore. Rainbows, browns, and a crisp late fall day. There are some big fish in that river. Hard to beat. Earlier this fall […]

Friday Fish Porn: Old Dominion Edition

Eva Colen is a Virginia native (a from here not come here) she’s quick to point out.

Some are amazing but far too many students, especially but not only low-income students and racial minorities, are being […]

Friday Fish Porn: Methods Edition!

Steven Glazerman is a senior fellow at Mathematica and well-regarded education researcher, very thoughtful on questions of research methods in education evaluation. Apparently, though, he should also be well-regarded as a fisherman. Here he is recently with a Bermuda chub. A Massachusetts native Steve sent along some locally themed commentary to accompany the photo, but […]

Friday Fish Porn – The New Fish Project

Here’s a little something for a lingering summer Friday morning: One fish, two fish, TNTP’s Dan Weisberg with a bluefish. Dan Weisberg is CEO at TNTP. He did a little fishing with some relatives this summer and they got into the bluefish (smoked bluefish is among the very top fish/game dishes I know).  Those are […]

The Mississippi native decided to try cold water fishing and took a day on the Roaring Fork. Here she is with a nice rainbow trout. There are big browns (really big) and rainbow trout in that water […]

Here’s Patrick McGuinn, professor of political science and author of education books, with his family and some fish they caught in Alaska earlier this summer. A few years ago he wrote a great analysis of No Child Left Behind politics. Want to know something even more interesting than that? Hundreds of pictures of education people […]
