Hello. Name is Jim. I live in Illinois. I spend most of my time outdoors. About half of that is fishing with vintage or older tackle.

Welcome aboard, Jim!

Best,

Before first light — with nothing less than wonder, and humility — I scan the cool, dark waters for the coming horizon — and the hope of what that deep unknowing might hold for me today...

——————————————————

Nothing happened. The fish just moved away slowly and the old man could not raise him an inch. His line was strong and made for heavy fish and he held it against his back until it was so taut that beads of water were jumping from it. Then it began to make a slow hissing sound in the water and he still held it, bracing himself against the thwart and leaning back against the pull. The boat began to move slowly off toward the north-west.

Santiago knew what he was in for, his lifelong experience had prepared him...

Welcome Jim,  glad you’re here, I’ve never been close to where you live.  It’s a big world 🌍. As an Alaska transplant it’s all about outdoor stuff for me.   Fishing 🎣 means water 💦 ,  we get that.  🤦‍♀️
