Del Bianco P&O's first fishing trip was a wonderful success. The weather was a little chilly but everyone caught enough fish for a nice dinner. Mostly bluefish, whiting, and one shark (caught and released safely). I know our friends and patients who came had a wonderful time. For Emma, going fishing was one of her dreams after her amputation and it was great to see her in action with her daughter. They caught more fish than anyone and taught me a thing or two. Next year we will get a little earlier start before it gets quite as cold as it was.
Waiting for the fish to strike!
Even though it was cold, the sky was beautiful.
First bluefish caught!
A nice one!
This poor little bird was missing a foot. I wished our office was nearby and I could get this little guy a prosthetic!
Spooky picture of the shark. I am not sure if anyone can identify the type. I think it was a little black tip. Released safe and well, the circle hooks really help with that.
Lending a hand to a friend.
Our youngest hero caught the biggest fish of the day!!!!
Great picture of Sid Nelson, one of our dedicated clinicians who loves to fish.
Sid and I cleaned all these fish for our friends. They were excited to have a nice fish fry for dinner. It was an honor to spend a day with such great people and to serve them. Our next adventure will be ski trip to Beech Mountain!
