If the House is Ruined, You Might as well Fish
By Joe Cermele
Check out the video below from a recent CNN broadcast in the Seattle area. Apparently, heavy rains caused a creek to severely overflow, and the dog in the video is having a blast chasing salmon down the street. Now the dog is cute and all, but this video raises a bigger question. Let's say you were the unfortunate victim of a terrible flood. You've done everything you can do to minimize damage to the house. I don't know about you, but rather than sit around, or while waiting for help, I'd be casting a streamer on the lawn if salmon were plowing across it.
I actually just read a good book about a Hurricane Katrina survivor that rode out the storm in New Orleans. He said when the waters rose, there were bull redfish swimming up the street. Am I the only one that faced with this situation might still consider grabbing a rod? - Cermele
