Ice Fishing

Andy | Thursday, March 06, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

A brave soul is he. No shelter and the cold wind blowing from behind him. I had been watching him in this crouched position for about twenty minutes. That is something I could never do.

  1. He sure is brave, to sit like that for twenty minutes is a miracle, I would have fallen over after a few minutes. Has he caught one?

  4. He really has to be a dedicated fisherman to do this. He has be considerably younger than I am to crouch like that for very long.

  6. I've noticed that the ice fishermen around here carry their stuff in 5 gallon plastic buckets which then becomes a seat. This is too cold for me, and where's the beer?

  7. Not sure "brave" is the word. Passionate? Obsessed? Nuts?

  8. Not for me either, but you know, I've watched many an ice fisher-person, and they seem so at peace while they're out there, that it almost makes me want to try it. Not this past winter though!!

    This is a wonderful image!

  10. I think you have to grow up doing this to find it appealing. And be very accustomed to the kind of cold weather you're enduring. This is a great shot, though. You really captured his stillness and concentration, a sort of meditative peacefulness.

  12. I couldn't either, but that's one thing that I don't regret not being able to do AT ALL! It's a great portrait...(I bet the guy would love to have a copy of it!)

  14. Most people I know don't have knees that would get them up after spending any time like this.

  15. I'm anxious to try it.. though preferably from within a hut. Probably next winter.
