When I saw this thread with the attachment I though it was going to be another striblue creation - imagine my shock to see the dancing turkey.

Have a great holiday everyone!

Now I am not sure of how much romanticizing has gone on about the feast of the pilgrims in the new world with their native american friends, but I have to think that any such celebration would bring a priceless sense of assurance to a band of brave settlers toughing it out in Plymouth, MA circa 1620. And if this sense of friendship, caring and appreciation is the basis for our annual celebration of thanks for what has since become America, the beautiful - then perhaps we should not feel any less appreciation today than this hardy group felt as they carved out the foundations of this great country in their flax-roofed huts thru the harsh northeast winter.

Today, we have so much to be thankful for including this community of friends and anglers with whom we celebrate this great sport and way of life, flyfishing.

Happy Thanksgiving to all, and thanks for making this place the best fireside lodge on the internet!

Juro, a ton of 'modern myth' now surrounds the

'history' of the first Thanksgiving. Strongly recommend reading up on the true events of the first two or three settlements (skipping Leif Erickson). Like much of history, what has been popularized is far, far from the actual events.

Start from the Mayflower Compact (America's first failed attempt at Socialism) and work forward from there. Most interesting group of people our founding forefathers.

Fred - I am sure it's interesting but being a bit of a romantic myself and not much of a history buff I am happy with the fact that indeed people did cross the atlantic under wind power, did carve out a living not far from where I now live, and succeeded in building the cornerstone of America. In fact, I have a friend of many years whose lineage descends directly from a passenger on that ship who had settled just to the south on Cape Cod.

According to historical artifacts, some of the earliest forms of commerce among the settlers was based on the areas rich fish resources. I once read that a portion of proceeds for sale of striped bass was allocated toward construction of the first schoolhouses in the settlement. The indians educated the settlers on the methods of trapping striped bass on the flats based on their desire to come up into the shallows with the tide.

I'll bet the social, religious, and political implications of these times were very different. I wonder what they'd think of the world today!

As far as Ericson's first thanksgiving - how about those stone sacrifice 'tables' they built in Maine!
