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!).

Mike Goldstein is an educational polymath and one of the original guestbloggers here and a returner many times since – where he goes wild. But I think fish pics is a first.
