Friday Fish Porn – On The Fork Again

Simmons Lettre and Ted Preston found themselves in Colorado this week for meetings.

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.

Friday Fish Porn: Methods Edition!

Friday Fish Porn – A Cod Piece!

Tim Lee works on development at the EAO 50Can. Here he is with a cod he caught off the coast of Iceland. Weighed in at 35lbs. Hard to tell who looks more surprised at the situation, Tim or the fish? This image is just one of hundreds of education types with fish they have caught […]
