The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Accidental angler

catching a medium sized carp with my hands!

We were walking to our car today and I noticed a medium sized fish had somehow got his head stuck in the hole of one of the cinder block stepping stones.

It's possible he was trying to feast on the many snails that have attached themselves to each block and just got a little greedy going for the deeper ones.

We debated having him for dinner, but decided he was too cute to eat.
