a week long watering in the NE announced the beginning of Summer weather; sunshine and nice beaches! what a day! although the sea water is still cold as trout waters, the striper is here! we found one was gliding though the beach! : )
the reason of mixing this combo is to get a great blend of the flavors, try it and you will love the smoothness of the curry! add a small batch of onion and green bell pepper at the end of the cooking (final 3 minutes), retain its crunching and freshness! : )
1> quickly whip some flies this morning, and... 2> heading to a secret spot (well one the way to the lab) 3> enjoy the long missing sunshine (a plus)... 4> fight some fat carp! 5> run more DNA sequencing later in the lab! what a day! : ) big smile!
Couple days ago, I received a unexpected phone call from my friend - Frank. He told me the fishing down there in Alabama is excellent! how good? I asked. "First cast, first fish - 35 lb striper...after I was skunking for a whole week in late April, and suddenly it all happens." The old saying "the dogwood blooming, the stripers are running". I do miss that!! Usually at this time of year, I will be fishing almost every morning, enjoy the sunrise, the bird songs and the fragrant from different wildflowers. Frank is a funny character, passion, kind and professional, not really a regular "friendship" of mine, instead, our friendship is more like a "streamside brotherhood" that we don't talk about anything other than fishing, and we probably only meet during the fishing season each year. However, the "simplicity" of this friendship has the same weight as other friendships that I treasured much. When he called, you know he just want to share the pleasure of fishing...
I am a biologist grew up with a fishing rod in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to embrace my love of art and science in my career. Most of my free time were well spent in the nature, either studying bird behavior or chasing variety of fish with fly rods. My favorite art medium is watercolors, I love the natural and spontaneous feel created by watercolor pigments. I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard University.
