Pam and I recently took a walk along the Muskegon Channel. The plan was to spend a few minutes walking and feeding the mallard ducks that inhabited the channel.
We fed the ducks and a swan. Afterwards, we walked towards the end of the pier and turned around.
As we made our way back to our vehicle, there was an opportunity to meet someone new.
He was a fisherman. Throwing his fishing line into the water, trying to catch walleye. He also had a name, Al, and a story to tell.
Passing him by, I decided to throw out the question you ask fishermen, “Have you caught anything today?”
This simple question led us to learn about the life of Al, and that of his father’s. We met someone new and we learned quite a bit.
