i only read about 10 pages so there really isnt much to talk about. paul dies. and they pretty much talk about the family and how they miss him. the dad and brother always talk about how he could out fish ANYBODY no matter if they have already fished the hole or not. his dad loved watching him fish. he said it was almost like he was being controled by a motor. like he was electric.

they dont know how paul died. the know it was a fight. but they dont know if he started it, or was trying to stick up for him self. they know he hit the guys so hard that all the bones in his hand broke. the other brother grows old, and fishes the waters by him self. but always know his brother is right there watching him. and trying to teach him the ways he fished the big blackfoot river.

– Here, write a two paragraph (a paragraph being 5-7 sentences) summary or response to your reading

in the begining of my pages, it starts out by the brothers in the car together, talking about of coarse. fishing. they are also talking about there dad and mom. and memories. then the decide they should probly go and see them, and see if there “old man” wants to go fishing. they talk to him and he says not today boys. i have stuff to do around the house. so one of the brothers went fishing and the other… i forget what the other did, but i know he left and wile he was driveing thought, ill go fishing with my brother. so he spent a couple hours looking for him and eventualy found him fishing and catching fish every 10 min. he decided to sit and watch for a wile with out him knowing. he eventualy saw him and got startled.

then the brothers decide to go to a more calm part of the river to fish when they stumble along a man and a woman laying in the sun, asleep, very sunburned. then find that the man is someone they know and is drunk, wile the woman they have seen around the town, but not super fumilar to her. she wakes up freaks out grabs her cloths and trys to get across the river. but stumbled and fell in the strong curent of the blackfoot river. then they take the drunk man home to his house and let him rest. that is the farthest i have got this time around.

well so far, i love this book. it kind of reminds me of my family, also mostly of me and my brother. we go fishing at our cabin by our selfs all the time we love it. Now in the book, they started to more into the lives of the 2 brothers. one brother is richer then the other. and one is a kind of gambler, drinker, and street fighter, but is the better fisherman.

the richer brother, paul, i think it was, says that his brother is a true pro, he can catch fish no matter what, always know exactly where the are. but always gets him self into troble with the law. he has also resently crashed his car and cant fix it becouse he dosent have any money.

well, it is a bit hard for me but im getting through it. the reading makes me want to go fishing and learn some new techniques that they menchin in the book. like casting into a bush, i never thought that was posible but, i guess it is. well, i havent really thought about it quite that much, im just trying to get my book done first. i also mite need some suggestions 😛 its harder for me when you say you can pretty much do what ever, i do better haveing a set thing to do, like a poster board, revue, or power point.

how am i doing on my homework?

im doing good! i found the book in my house. i have started to ready it, and sense i am not a fast reader it also helps that i have seen the movie to help me get whats going on!
