JUN.23.2008 - Man VS Fish Beast

sitting there on the floor of the boat, hidden behind the seat in front of me, i escaped the cold winds. we had been there three hours, while my hopes had been gone an hour before that. thats when it happened...


the pole jolted down, pointing down into the river. i asumed the fish was about forty yards out because i let my line out very far due to my prior boardom. i struggled to take the pole from its holster. the line was very tight as the fish resisted my reeling. out of nowhere the fish changed direction, hoping it would make enough slack to escape its feight. i kept the line tight as i reeled the line as fast as i could, keeping the fish hooked. it surfaced with a large splash! my eyes must have been so wide because i could hardly believe the size of that monster! by this time i had been fighting the fish for about fifteen minutes and my strength was becoming less. i consided defeat but knew that if i did i would never forgive myself, and also everyone in the boat would probably have made fun of me for letting a fish get the best of me. after twenty minutes of fighting, kim put the net in the water. seconds after uncle gordon bonked the fish over the head with a stick, and thats when i knew...

i had defeated the twenty pound king salmon!

lifes been good. i have four things ive been trying constantly to remind myself to do. floss my teeth, maintain hygine, and improve my gamer score on halo 3. JUST KIDDING! actually its eat healthy, work out, dedicate 15 minutes a day to meditation time, and keep writing more music. so im pretty stoked on my new list of things to do.
