He has the primest gear, the top brand equipment, specifically naming his “Mitchell reel” and his “Pfleuger spinning rod” (Wetherell 2). He practices casts constantly, testing the reel’s drag and never going anywhere without his fishing pole. Fishing is more than a casual interest; it is a lifelong passion. Another reason the protagonist may pick the bass is shown through his vast amount of knowledge involving
He might choose the girl for several reasons, first off she is pretty he describes her as percect for him. also he loves her.

He thinks her white dress shows off her figure more than her normal bathing suit. He also has the option of taking the Bass over Sheila. This Bass is by far the biggest bass that he has ever seen and has been working to catch it for months. The line was running wild; the Bass was clearly putting up a fight.

While in the current news article “Laura Dekker: a heroine for our times” by Emine Soner, tells the story of a young girl, Laura, who wants to sail around the world. Although many in her country, the Netherlands, disagree with her planned voyage.
He kept debating over the big bass, or Sheila. Right before they got to shore he saw how beautiful she was and he… “pulled a penknife from [his] pocket and cut the line in half” (Wetherell 312). This part/ quote in the story shows how Sheila has an influence on the decisions he makes, and this time he chose her and his crush over her than his passion for fishing, which makes him “him.” These parts of the story help develop the author’s theme of decision making because you can clearly see all of the decisions Sheila and the narrator make in the end of the
I was so delighted that see that and wanted to catch my own. Then my brother's friend started to catch fish too and I was about to crack. I tried to keep myself calm and was saying to myself that I'm going to catch a fish. The clock was ticking, hours passing by and I wasn't catching anything.

Through the classes, labs, and outdoor missions The Marine Science Center, in Pigeon Key, was just as it was advertised to my class: a Marine Science camp. We participated in several animal based adventures including tide pooling, which was my favorite animal-based adventure.

After an hour or two of intense searching, every team was called to a small tent to input their findings into the pool of invertebrates.
I am reading “The Bass, The River, and Sheila Mant” by W. D. Wetherell, and I am on page 3. So far this book is about a boy who falls in love a girl who lives next door. He takes the girl out on a boat ride to a concert but realizes that he forgot to take his fishing line off of the boat until a very large bass comes along and pulls on his line. He tries to hide the fish on the line, because he knows that Sheila does not like to fish so he’s trying to hide the evidence. In this journal I will be questioning and connecting.
