u big haul n Fishing opener By Michael Olson Somehow I dont think Outdoor Life or Field and Stream would be interested in a story about my ex- periences on the first day of fishing season this year. But you judge for vourself Friday afternoon June 1 I sud- denly decided to get'a fishing license and take the kids fishing on the opener. So I stopped at a lrcal super bought a license, a trout SSJjSr "SSt him, some hooks, sinkers, bubbles, and a bag of salt water taffy. The bill was $27 or so. A young man waiting in line behind me asked for a carp stamp, which I suppose was an editorial comment on his part. When I got home, the little kids, Gabe age 6; Rachel, age 4; and Kate, age 8, became all excited about the trip. Everyone was going when it got to hunt dark. But then my oldest son, Adam, got a phone call and a chance to go to Scofield Reservoir with a friend, and since he was the one who would have led the nightcrawler expedition, it didnt materialize at all. The younger kids fell asleep too early and I figured for where I was going to take them cheese would be both easier to get and cleaner to use. I had noticed on a proclamation on the supermarket counter that the official starting time for fishing is 5 a.m. On opening day that is usually very important to remember, since the banks are always lined with locals and their kids at any pond you choose to visit. The supermarket had only one small box of Velveeta cheese left. It cost $1.35, so I figure the large, economy box would have set me back some four or five dollars. In the story parking lot the kids noticed a jeep with fishing poles sticking out of it. It excited them all the more. We squealed out of there night-crawle- and rs quickly arrived at our destination: Spring Lake, right on the highway about three miles south of Payson. There were little clumps of people spaced at decent intervals around the pond as we drove up to the south end and parked near an old man who sat on a canvas folding chair fishing, He didnt look happy when we drove up, and a few moments after hearing the squeals of my two little girls and their brother, he reeled in his line, folded up his chair, and moved 25 yards to the east. We put the two poles together and cast out the lines. The kids wouldnt leave them alone, though, and in between unwrapping and eating salt water taffy, they kept picking them up. At about 11:30 (we had arrived at around 9:50) there was a bite on my pole. I set the hook, thought I could feel something on the line, and gave d the pole to Kate to reel in. She brought in a wiggling on the end of the line. And it was.

There were an estimated 314 pool d and deaths involving children under 5 in 1981, the commission reported. Only motor vehicles, home fires, and chokings kill more preschoolers than pools and spas, the agency said. Vicki Brown of the Commissions Bureau of Epidemiology reported that the most common pattern is for a parent or other adult to be busy with chores at home, and not be aware that the child is near the pool. But children under 5 can walk or crawl rapidly when not watched, she said, and. may be attracted to water. Most of them, however, cannot swim and are unable to get out of a pool once they fall in. spa-relate- SUNGLASSES: SHADES OF Outdoor light can be as much as 20 times brighter than normal light. If eyes are exposed to sunlight for long periods of time, the results can be eyestrain, headaches and a feeling of fatigue. Thats where a good pair of sunglasses can help. Here are some things to look for: In general, sunglasses will screen out 65 to 80 percent of the sun. use, glasses For general, at the lower end of the scale will be adequate.
