He would get up well before sunrise, paddle out into the water, then sit for hours with his back to the rising sun waiting for the slightest nibble. Some days, he would come home with a cooler packed full of his day’s bounty. Other days, his cooler was packed with the crusts of the stinky salami sandwich he’d wrapped in wax paper and the dregs of stale beer in the bottom of crushed cans. I realize tha...
