This story is reminiscent of all the summer days I spent with my dad fishing on the Two Hearted River, Half-a-day Creek, and Pendle's Creek in Michigan's U.P. with my dad, as well as the cool summer nights camping on the shores of Lake Superior with my college friends. David describes the scenery and the thrill of the catch emotively! I bet the fishing was even better in Ernest Hemingway's day!
