I've spent many summers fishing in the northern lakes of Minnesota and frequently passed through the home of Paul Bunyan—Bemidji, MN. The town has a huge statue of the giant lumberjack and his neon blue ox. For me, its always a bonus that I can personally relate to the job in some way. Sometimes really bending the concept to make it work for myself. I would fish everyday if it weren't for the fact that I live in NYC. I love fishing, even if the fish aren't biting. Something about being on a little motor boat in the middle of a misty lake, loons wailing in the distance, watching my bobber slowly sink equals heaven.
