Impromptu social gatherings held by water over the summer might sound like a lot of events, unless you like to fish.
Summertime in the Midwest is prime fishing time, something I enjoy along with hiking, and fishing spots of meetings places that where a common greeting is “What’s biting?”
I’ve discussed luck with strangers, and found out if someone used poppers by the shallows to get them biting. Or maybe they used chicken liver bits for catfish. Fishing holes inspire relaxed conversations with other anglers and some useful tips.
Another I love in the summer is a fish fry.
