Whoohoo! The fish are back! (Dice=5)
Decent size too, at 11lb. Let me know if you want a fillet...

Looks like we're getting a new embassy with FUR. Maybe we could invite embassadors over for Friday fishing? It seems a little lonely in this stretch of the river this week.

This fish struggled hard and nearly got away (Dice=10, swipe skill=11).
No wonder it was so hard to catch, it was 15 pounds!

You'll need some help eating that then? :)

I still got the whole fish in my fridge. Everybody in Bear Country can come by and get a bit. :)

Hello Bear Country! How are you all doing?

FURry well thank you! Nice to have a visitor. Would you like some salmon? There's some left in Senpato's fridge. (I know cos I didn't eat all of it. There's actually some left in my fridge too, but it seems easier to part with someone else's fish...)

Thank you for the offer, but I'll pass I ate too much salmon last night for dinner!

Shrank? Just lost a bit of our winter fat is all!

How are you at catching salmon? It's Salmon Fishing Friday. We got a decent haul of fish last week, so it all looks promising for this week! You're welcome to join in. Come over toSenpato river, and I'll show you the technique. What you do is...

...oh. Well maybe somebear else can show you the technique. I seem to be a bit off today (dice=14).

What's supposed to happen, is that you visit https://www.random.org/dice/?num=3
The dice show you whether or not you caught a fish. You need to roll under your salmon swiping skill score (currently 10) to catch one.
If you catch one, you roll again to find out the weight of your fish in lb. And if you catch a big one, (the weight is bigger than your swiping score) then your swiping score goes up by one. I think Senpato is our current champion with a swipe score of 12?

I would, but those slippery salmon keep sliding out of my hands! (score = 13)

It must be our techniques - it's hard to believe that we're over-fishing!

The half moon mountains

Mmm. Had a lazy day today. I picked up some tasty grub from a fast-food branch at lunchtime. Not sure how much space I have left for dinner. Still, it's traditional Fish on a Friday time!

Can I do this without getting wet paws? If I stand with one paw on this rock, and another paw on that, maybe I can...
*fall in*
Grr! Soaked through! Managed to get a fish though (dice = 10), and a respectable 10lb. New technique of falling on top of a fish seems to work!

The half moon mountains

*sneaks into Senpato's fridge*
Hmm. No salmon left. What is a hungry bear to do? Mayonnaise? Nah. Beer? Yup! Mommabeer it is!
Now how do you open the ring pull with paws?

Thanks for letting me hibernate here.

Oops! Did I wake you? Here, if you don't tell Senpato, I'll share this can of Mommabeer with you!

I'm feeling peckish again though. Time for some fish.
How does that saying go?

Give a bear a fish, and he'll eat for a day. Teach a bear to fish, and he'll spend a lifetime by the river drinking his ass off.

Wise words indeed.
I reckon I need someone to give me a fish. I'm clearly too drunk to catch one (dice=12)

The half moon mountains

I just ate too much fish last time. I didn't make it to the river in time. Still full anyway.

It's salmon fishing time again!
It was hard to hold the one I pulled out of the water (roll 11, swipe skill 12).
It struggled hard, with all its 12 pounds.

Hello all, how are you all doing?

Truxol wrote:Hello all, how are you all doing?

Very well thank you!
Try your paw at fishing. It's easy really. The difficult bit is finding a good spot on the river to stand. Here's a good place. They'll be easy to grab from here... See? (Dice{5).
Not as big as Senpato's though. Only 10lb.

*Whispers* Still, we can raid Senpato's fridge later. I seem to have been getting away with it so far */whisper*

I'd love to try my hand at fishing!
I hope I get a big fish!

Brilliant! The tradition is that everybear heads down to the river on a Friday. Noone will mind if you have a practice before next Friday.

Rules are:

Summerti-i-i-ime
And the livin's easy
Fish are jumping
And Mommabear's high...

Too high! (Dice=14)

Now that's put a Stevie Wonder song in my head...

Senpato! Read your telegrams!

We have a new embassy with Bear World!
Senpato accepted whilst WA. Pop over and say hello!

Kermode

Hi all.

This week's fishing will be hosted in our new home The Bear Country!

I'll be staying here until you've all moved over, and I'll then hand the keys to Ranger Smith, who'll keep an eye on the place.
