A 9 pound Biscayne

Welcome, Oliver.

Welcome, Oliver.

Well… it’s been an exciting few days. The big news is that my son has made his way into the world. Oliver Biscayne Stromsness was born at 8:19 AM on December 20th. My wife put in a magnificent effort to deliver this 9 pounder. Watching a woman do that will fill you with awe and deep, deep respect for the rest of your days.

His middle name is Biscayne. It isn’t a name I have any rights to, but it is a place I got to fish and enjoyed a lot and would like to fish more in the future. There are guys who fish it every day and don’t name their sons after it. I’m hoping that doesn’t come across as presumptuous. There is no presumption, just interest and passion and maybe this will cause my boy to someday seek out those waters for himself, or better yet, with me in the boat. My daughter’s middle name is Babine and for many of the same reasons.

So, I’m a bit frantic at the moment, but I’ll keep posting.

See you on the interwebs,

Bonefish Bjorn, father of 2.
