|"Into the Storm" by Al Sprague, 2010 captures the native fishermen heading out for the day|
As a child growing up in Panama, I had my share of days out on the water fishing for every type of fish you can think of. You see, my father (Al Sprague) is an avid fisherman. He had us kids out fishing since we were three years old. That was and is still a huge part of our lives. In the early morning we would load up the boat for the day and head out to see what we could catch. As we traveled out to the nearby islands of Taboga, Tabigilla, and Malonis (I called it Bologna Island) we would watch the natives heading out in their pangas.
