OK, I’ll bite. What does Esse guam videri mean?

Sieze the fish, stretch them lips?

It means…

“To be, rather than to seem to be.”

Cool !

It looks something like a sculpin or around here some call them bullheads. Sculpins are a small fish, 1” to 3” long and frequent cold fast running water. They use the large frontal fins to keep themselves pressed against the bottom. They make great bait but unfortunatly haven’t been legal to use for many years.

“To be, rather than to seem to be.” is a nice sentiment to keep in mind.
