Sometimes, It's not all about the Fish you catch

On a day like yesterday, you really beg for something to bring you up, and then it happens.It was a miserable day, windy, cloudy, rain spurts all day long, and the pressure system turned the fish right off. it was not a very good day, with only 2 small bass in the boat, but I like to see that a bad day of fishin, is much better than a good day of working, so I tried to stay optimistic. On the way home from the lake, we took a back road, as we were coming around the corner of a not yet grown corn field, I spotted a bird, standing up right, looking around. To my surprise, and delight, it was a Bald Eagle. This magnificent bird took my breath away. I have never seen anything so beautiful and Majestic. it is not uncommon for people to see bald eagles on the western side of the country, but in Southern Ontario, it is very uncommon, as the Bald Eagle has been and still is a Provincial Endangered Species, since 1971. I couldn't believe I got to witness this. It turned my day around.Although we had a bad day fishing, this sight made my day worth If your ever having a bad day fishing, try and find your "Bald Eagle" !Life isn't measured by the breaths you take, but my the moments that take your breath away!
