The Washington Outdoors Report: Time enough at last


April 15, 2020

One of the best-known episodes from the classic television series “The Twilight Zone”, was about a bespectacled bookworm named Henry Bemis. All he wanted to do was read books undisturbed, but life for this bank teller just got in the way. That was, until he emerged from a lunch break in a bank vault to find the world had come to an end thanks to a nuclear war, and he was the sole survivor. This gave him the opportunity to finally read all the books he wanted. The episode—“Time Enough at Last”—ended with fate playing a cruel trick on Henry Bemis just as he was about to enjoy life in this post-apocalyptic world.

The story seems apt for anglers, hunters, and outdoors enthusiasts...
