Artist's Statement: After my uncle, who has Alzheimer’s and who always loved the outdoors, tried to tell us that he had caught a fish “THIS—BIG” only to have my aunt bring his hands together and remind him that he had only really caught his minnow bait, his ego was, at first, deflated. But then, his face sparkled as he asked my aunt, “I did catch you, right? So I did get the best catch of the day!” We all had to admit that he was right once again…

Dedication: To all the fishermen who can claim the best catches of the day.
