Very enjoyable story, it carried me back to some farm ponds I used to frequent back in Mississippi. It also made me appreciate my access to a handful of lakes here in the suburbs of Atlanta where subdivisions have been built around them but the fishing remains very good. The farmers in overalls have been replaced by ladies doing yard work and dad's taking the kids to soccer games.
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. Winston Churchill
