My brother Joseph and fishing
Fishing is in our blood. When we were young, our grandfather dug some fish ponds. We drove to help him harvest the fish. It was exciting. Now we are grown, Joseph still loves fishing.
Once, he took me in his boat at 4am so that we caught the right time for the fish in the pacific ocean. Alas, I have married a Chin, and he had diluted my blood. I no longer care for waking up at 4am to catch fish. I was sea sick, and when I reeled in my first fish, I didn't want to fish anymore.
When Joseph is not flying out to his fishing spot, he is a migration lawyer.
