Fish . . . and more Fish...If Today Were a Fish, I'd Throw It Back.

Fish - - Blenko http://www.blenko.com/ has a large selection of glass FISH. For years Blenko has made various sizes, style FISH.

Long ago - Mark Twain said: " When you fish for love, bait with your heart, not your brain.
Henry David Thoreau is given credit for :" Many men go fishing all their lives without knowing it is not fish they are after."
In Grade school Ms. Dumany made me memorize : A Chinese Proverb - " Give me a fish and I eat for a day. Teach me to fish and I eat for a lifetime."
Another Chinese Proverb - " All cats love fish but fear to wet their paws."

For the BLENKO GLASS designers and craftsmen - I think the location of BLENKO in Milton, on the water make the FISH and DUCKS a natural part of the Blenko line. The men are inspired daily by the natural setting surrounding Blenko Glass. If you haven't taken your family to BLENKO - June is a great month to go - observe the glass making process, feed the ducks, enjoy the glass garden, observe the beautiful lake and grounds. Blenko Glass, Milton, West Virginia an educational and fun day trip. hjh
Note: Have an unusual Blenko Fish - send a photo.
