Let's Go Fishing

It is always an exciting time when going deep sea fishing. Some people regard fishing as an old man’s sport. People have been captivated by the sea since the beginning of time, and of catching fish since around the same time. The sport has grown hugely in many ways, yet has stayed the same in many aspects. Imagine looking at the ocean as a slick plate of glass when it is calm, or it can be a very dangerous place if a storm decides to get it riled up. Fly fishing, on the other hand can be a relaxing adventure. Although it takes skill to cast a fly rod, a sharp eye to find the fish, a special hand to convince the fish to take the feathery lure, and quite possibly some fast reflexes to hook the fish, if you get that window of opportunity. If you do not get it right, you can watch your fish majestically swim away as he spits out the feathery hook, and you reel the line in as gracefully as you cast it out. Although deep sea fishing and fly fishing are similar as sports, they differ concerning equipment, locations, and types of fish.

For those of you interested in fishing, but are not so lucky at it, there are some guidelines you may want to try. The first important thing you should know is that the equipment you use is very important. “You would not want to “bring a knife to a gunfight,” because it wouldn’t be prudent.” ("Fishing." 123HelpMe.com. 13 Nov 2013 <http://www.123HelpMe.com/view.asp?id=65836>). Fishing is just the same. If you are fishing for an 800 pound blue marlin, you would not want to use a light-weight fly rod. If you are fly-fishing for large cutthroat in saltwater, you would not need a heavy action rod. In order to know what equipment to use, you first need to know what species of fish you are fishing for. If you are fishing for black…...

Fly Fishing

...Fly fishing is a popular sport that many fishing enthusiasts tend to fall in love with the more time that they spend fishing. The thrill of catching a fish is an experience like no other because one gets to see his/her catch while it is still alive. The sense of accomplishment that comes with catching a fish is exhilarating. Many skills have to be incorporated while fishing with patience being the most important attribute. One must certainly know and understand how to cast a line in order to successfully catch a fish, as well as knowing the water source that he/she is fishing in. Knowledge of the best fishing spots in a certain body of water is essential to catching fish, and this knowledge is only obtained by experience. Much preparation is involved in the sport of fly fishing, including having the essential supplies such as bait, rod, reel, and fishing line, as well as the proper clothing for the weather conditions. Fly fishing is even more complicated than normal fishing, for instance the rod and reel for fly fishing is completely different than normal fishing poles, and fisherman must use different types of line to create the proper fly fishing line. Fly fishing differs from normal fishing because it is unique and challenging involving techniques on how to: cast the fishing line, create flies to use as bait, and locate the best possible water sources for catching the biggest fish. The key to properly casting a fly fishing line is to have the right timing. Having the......

Let's Eat

...Let’s Eat Jessica Haller DeVry University Let’s consider where hamburger comes from. Reading Pollen’s, The Omnivore Dilemma, it sparked an interest in me to not only follow the path of where the corn is grown and what it is used to create, but also what does corn feed that provides dinner on the table for us. One big contention in today’s day and age is how is the corn grown and used to feed the animals which sustain us. You see in the super markets all the time now, organic carrots, corn, potatoes, lettuce, grain fed hamburger. What does all of this mean? Taking a step back and looking where it originated, we see cattle herding. Herding cattle is as old as Time itself. As old as when the first cattle where domesticated over 50,000 years ago, and as old as the cattle drives done in the Old West. Now imagine living back in the days of the “Wild West”. Being part of a cattle drive and moving the cattle from the East coast and “Going West.” The cook or the “Boss man” of the cattle drive was the “man who owned the cattle they were herding -- but everyone also knew the cook was the man even the boss deferred to most often. The outfit's chuck wagon was a rough equivalent of a traveling general store, and the cook was not only the chief clerk of that store, he was usually the closest thing the cowboys had to a doctor, surgeon, dentist, tailor, and fussy maiden aunt.”(Old West, 2012) You being the “Boss man” have to feed the entire crew and making sure that you have enough...

Fishing

...Fishing is the activity of catching fish. It is an ancient practice dating back at least 40,000 years. Since the 16th century fishing vessels have been able to cross oceans in pursuit of fish and since the 19th century it has been possible to use larger vessels and in some cases process the fish on board. Fish are normally caught in the wild. Techniques for catching fish include hand gathering, spearing, netting, angling and trapping. The term fishing may be applied to catching other aquatic animals such as shellfish, cephalopods, crustaceans, and echinoderms. The term is not usually applied to catching aquatic mammals, such as whales, where the term whaling is more appropriate, or to farmed fish. In addition to providing food, modern fishing is also a recreational sport. According to FAO statistics, the total number of fishermen and fish farmers is estimated to be 38 million. Fisheries and aquaculture provide direct and indirect employment to over 500 million people.[1] In 2005, the worldwide per capita consumption of fish captured from wild fisheries was 14.4 kilograms, with an additional 7.4 kilograms harvested from fish farms.[2] Contents 1 Prehistory 2 Ancient history 3 Commercial fishing 3.1 Fish netting 3.2 Herring fisheries 3.3 Trawling 3.4 Cod trade 3.5 Trepanging 3.6 Chinese Americans 4 Artisan fishing 5 Recreational fishing 5.1 The fishing reel 5.2 Fly fishing ...

Let's Not Exaggerate

...Let’s not exaggerate!!! We frequently complain about headaches, tiredness and cold. They are so common to our daily routine that sometimes we don’t give them importance or just ignore them. We mostly relate them to hard work, stress and malnutrition. But is it really true? What if these symptoms turn out to be something more? “Let’s not exaggerate! It happens to me all the time. I’m sure it’s nothing” you would surely answer. And it is a very common reaction. Most of the people would say that. Because of hard work and busy, chaotic life, we just create a “not very important list” and use it every time we need an excuse to avoid an annoying visit to a doctor. “But, why do I need a doctor? He will tell me what I already know! Take some pills and stay in bed!” Maybe yes, and maybe not, anyway, you don’t know what your doctor knows. Did you know that a simple headache could be an early sign of blood pressure problems, brain tumor, flu, various types of viruses and even a pregnancy? And did you know that a persistent tiredness is a very commonly ignored disorder that indicates a lack of an important nutrition element? And did you know that a simple cold could be a greater danger when it is ignored and not properly treated? I’m sure, you didn’t. John, from California, had the same point of view. One sunny morning, he woke up with a medium size pimple on his hand. It seemed a strange thing to him, but he decided to ignore it and go on with his life. But, the pimple had a......

Bass Fishing

...Mr. English 1113 09/16/13 Bass Fishing: You’ll Be Hooked Americans choose many different activities to occupy their free time, all with the common goal to loosen up and have an enjoyable time. The outdoors can be the perfect setting to enjoy different activities or hobbies. With many options available, bass fishing is an ideal diversion to teach something new about nature and provide time to unwind. It can teach how to respect nature and provide a new understanding of sportsmanship, while also being a truly exciting experience that anyone could get hooked to. Bass fishing, no matter what species, can be an extremely enjoyable pastime if you learn to use patience, recognize the best place to fish, and understand bass’ behavior as well as how to catch them. “One only has to experience the heart-stopping thrill of hooking into a largemouth bass to become infatuated with this sport” (Larson 15)! Patience is number one when it comes to bass fishing. All aspects of fishing revolve around using patience and being ready at all times. Fishing for largemouth bass is usually an all day event. Sometimes I may catch 10 to 15, other days I may only catch one or two. This is why patience is important, to refrain from getting bored or frustrated. It’s not about how many fish you catch, or if you caught more than someone else, it’s about experiencing the outdoors and spending time with nature. Going bass fishing is sort of similar to going to......

Fishing for Sucess

...Jonathon Carroll Ms. Carver The Old Man and the Sea August 29, 2013 Fishing for Success In The Old Man and the Sea Hemingway tells the story of an old man’s quest for fish and turns it into a story about a hero that overcomes adversity. The title alone reveals to the reader that this is no ordinary fishing tale. Hemingway’s hero in the novel, the fisherman, Santiago, begins with adversity. He lives in poor conditions and has not caught fish for eight-four days. One might think of taking up a different line of work or sign up for a fishing class. But, Santiago remains optimistic and true to his passion. The adversity of the ocean, the fish, and the sharks are used by Hemingway to create a noble hero. Life is unpredictable and can make reaching your goals seem out of reach. Santiago endures the adversity brought on by the sea with courage and pride. Santiago lives very poorly and tells everyone he eats fish at home knowing that he has none to eat. He would rather go hungry than be shamed. Our hero bears the adversity of being a “salao” or the worst kind of unlucky. Santiago never accepting defeat begins again every day with a positive attitude that it will be a better day. Santiago respects and loves the sea, but at the same time must battle the sea. The sea even battles Santiago and heckles him using the voices of the other villagers that call him “salao.” Even though life symbolized by the sea challenges Santiago’s faith, he never gives up. On the......

Fishing Trip

...Dazmon Williams ENG 111 2-1-14 Final Draft Sunday's Fishing Trip Sunday evening after church about 6:00 at Lake Gaston. The sun was beginning to go down. I was with Mr. Williams and his wife Brenda, his son Willie’s and wife Beverly and their precious little baby boy. My brother George was with us also. Mr. Williams is a longtime deacon at my church I have much respect for him. I call him my godfather due to the time he spends with me and gives me some good advice when I need. I was ready to help get the boat in the water; he said earlier he would let me drive the boat some. That made me so happy, but I tried to hide it. Everyone else didn't seem very excited about the trip. I tried to get my brother excited about it. I asked him why you’re not excited. He said "I just want to fish" with the sound of depression in his voice. I asked him "why are you acting like this?" He didn't say a word, he just looked away. After all fishing is his favorite hobby, so that really puzzled me. I told him let's embrace this blessing that Mr. Williams let us go with them fishing, let's make this trip interesting. We all got ready to unload the boat in the water. Mr. Williams told me what to do and how to do it, since this was my first time unloading a boat. Little did I know that it would take five people? Mrs. Brenda drove the truck, backing the boat and the trailer up in the water, Mr. Williams and Junior was unfastening the boat from the trailer. My brother and I had to hold......

Illegal Fishing

...Mauricio Rodriguez 27 August,2012 Illegal Fishing In the world there is a lot if different types of commercial fishing most are illegal, the most interesting to me is shark fishing. In most places shark fishing is legal but only if you bring the whole shark when you return but most people would just take the most important or expensive part of the shark, which is the shark fin. When people fish the shark fins the would take the sharks out of the water and the they would cut the fins and return them to the ocean and the shark would die of hunger of would stop swimming as a cause of their lot fin. We need to stop or slow down shark fishing because they will be extinct soon if we don’t stop it and if they go extinct the natural balance of nature of the ocean will collapse because of the food chain Shark finning exists because the amount of money restaurants, medicine companies spend for the shark fin. Asian restaurant companies would charge about $100 USD for one soup of shark fin. Medicine that comes from shark fin is always very expensive. This is why people abuse and kill sharks illegally in large amounts. Shark finning is banned in many countries. Governments should reward those fishermen who accidently fish a shark in their nets or lines and return them safe and alive again to the ocean. Governments should give them a good amount of money if fishermen contribute in preserving sharks. Many fishermen return the sharks to the ocean once the fins have been......

Let's Go Travel Trailer

On the other hand, the Letsgo Travel Trailer Company is experiencing challenges with quality, cash flow and a performance review and reward system. This is happening due to lack of integrative planning across different functions. Each functional unit is trying to maximize their own performance, which in turn is hampering the overall performance. The current appraisal and reward system is increasing this isolated and non-cooperative working of the different functional units. ▪ The sales department to improve their sales want to have high finished goods inventory ▪ The production department wants to have high inventory of raw material to have uninterrupted production schedule. They are not interested in implementation of Just-in-time inventory methods to reduce the overall cost. ▪ The current control and reporting system does not provide enough good quality data to guide management decision process. For example, no record for work in process is kept in the company. ▪ The accounts department is making the budget without getting any information from functional units. This way the budgets are not realistic and reflect only an accounting necessity rather than a decision making and control tool. ▪ The cash management system of the......

Let’s Go to the Opera!

...Let’s go to the Opera! What was the first Opera? “The standard textbook answer is easy. The first opera was Daphne, first performed in 1598 during Carnival at the home of Jacopo Corsi (d.1604) in Florence, music by Corsi and Jacopo Peri (1561-1633), libretto by Ottavio Rinuccini (1562-1621). It is recognized as the first because it was the first of a series of similar pieces which established the form of early 17th century Italian opera, and all subsequent developments were based on that tradition. The score does not survive. There were many precursors of opera, and you can define it to include or exclude any of them. Corsi, Peri, and Rinuccini were members of a group who believed that the dramas of Classical Greek Antiquity were sung rather than spoken. Medieval liturgical dramas started in about the 10th century. Hildegard von Bingen's 12th century Ordo virtutum can be staged, although we don't know whether it was. The same is true of the anonymous Play of Daniel, Play of Herod, and other liturgical plays from the early 13th century. Adam de la Halle's later 13th century Play of Robin & Marion has been called "suitable for staging," but whether it was intended for staging or ever actually staged we don't know. The early 14th century Roman de Fauvel is also considered by some to be suitable for staging, and a performance of the entire thing would be approximately as long as Wagner's entire Ring cycle! More immediate precursors were the 16th century Italian Intermedio,......

Fly Fishing

...caught essentially for consumption. However, catching fish happens to be a well-known recreational pastime as well. Recreational fishing is also known as sport fishing. The main motive behind recreational fishing is pleasure or relaxation along with competition in some cases. It should not be mixed with subsistence or commercial fishing. While subsistence fishing is for basic survival, commercial fishing is essentially for profit. In some countries, recreational fishing has various rules as well as regulations to follow and enjoy the process. The regulations that are imposed on recreational fishing include the laws and the licensing restrictions that deal with limiting the procedures by which the fish might be caught. The most typical of these restrictions include prohibition in using nets and using hooks that are not into the mouth. The most usual form of such fishing is done with the aid of line, reel, rod, hooks, etc. These devices should be used along with the huge range of available baits. In order to help the individuals in the act of fishing, devices called terminal tackle are also used widely. The devices that are generally considered under terminal tackle include floats, swivels, weights, etc. These devices usually help to complement the bait that is being presented to the target. Sometimes lures, instead of baits are also used in recreational fishing. Some of the enthusiastic individuals insist on preparing their own lures instead of using the ones that are......

Fishing

...people's fishing. I believe that certain national characteristics emerge in fishing and attitudes toward fishing. With this in view I have for several years studied the relationship of fishermen to fish. It is therefore natural that I am drawn to the Mulla-Mootha on a Sunday afternoon in the summer where one may observe Pune fishing at its very best. The English tourists in Pune rival with the Americans in fishing. However, the former sit on the riverside all day long without catching one single measly trout. They use sophisticated tackles and baits, but catch hardly anything or nothing. They smoke many pipes, reduce all language to a series of grunts, and finally go back home in the evening, almost empty-handed. The Americans conceive of fishing as more than a sport. They have with them mountains of equipment: reels, lines, rods, and so on. They endow the fish with great intelligence and fabulous strength, so that in defeating it they may seem even more clever and powerful. The banks of the Mulla-Mootha on a summer Sunday are lovely. The fishing of the Indians there is very different. Each man has his place and does not move from it. Their fishing equipment is simple but invariable. The pole is of bamboo, not costly but often adorned, painted blue or red or sometimes in stripes of many colours. The tackle is as delicate and transparent as a spider's web. On a hook about the size of a pinhead is fixed a tiny bread pellet. The Indians are now ready for the......
