We've lived in our apartment now for 13 months and the view from my breakfast table on the 22nd floor is that of a local fishing place: Bate Island http://www.ottawafishing.net/bateisland.html
It is in zone 12 of the Ontario fishing regulations: http://files.ontario.ca/environment-and-energy/fishing/2015%20English%20Fishing%20Regs%20Zone_12.pdf
My Sunday bicycling took me past a place that sold worms and so I picked up a small tub for sometime this week.
Today was the day: no scheduled calls (though I was delayed leaving by an unscheduled call), clear weather forecast (though hot and muggy) and so I played hookey.
I packed up my rod, net, tackle box, worms and fishing license (which I have kept continuously active for the last 25 years for the few times just in case where having it was very handy) in my bicycle trunk and spent a quiet morning with the ducks and geese (though the bridge noise was sometimes intrusive). Only 7 minutes to cycle each direction, but rush hour traffic is heavy on each of the few Ottawa bridges between Quebec and Ontario so that bit isn't so pleasant.
I picked a spot just to the side of the rapids, with a view of Canada's Parliament Buildings downstream. That was very pleasant.
I only do "catch and release", and I didn't catch anything today, but that isn't the point. I enjoyed simply concentrating on the bobber and time passed very quickly as there were lots of nibbles and the fish had some breakfast.
I hope to get out again a few times in the next two weeks.
