Haha nice fish forthw wife Gurth. My wife accepts my fishing problem as a coping mechanism, but it's the last thing she'd do for fun! R



Oh... mine knows that the stream is my time and she wouldn't have the appetite to go as much as I do anyway. Also - she likes to sleep in on the weekend more than about anything else in the world. That right there buys me more solitude than any other factor. Wink


She does like to fish on occasion though and I was happy that she finally got some trout and got a taste of what streams are all about.

Gurth I'd trade in some of my big fish to get my wife to go with me just once! Waders, bugs, brush, tripping and falling, sweating...she's out.

Mine too - after the first mosquito, she's back inside, even at home. I'm not sure how I made the mistake of marrying a woman whose idea of The Great Outdoors consists of the walk between her car and her office.

She's pretty tough and resilient, but she wouldn't put up with some of the places I go or some of the days that I go.

The stars aligned on Sunday - perfect temp, not too hot or too cold... limited bugs - a few gnats on the first stream and no bugs the rest of the day that I remember... easy access banks except for the last place... solid bottoms in the water...

The only thing that didn't quite happen was the fish count, but I got 5 and she got 4. Had I gone alone and gotten those 9 trout, I'd have thought it was a pretty good day.

I'll get back to you in January and February. We'll see what she's made of then. Wink

Some reinforcements arrived in the mail yesterday and the 2019 Panther Martin catalogue was included.

Thumbed through and noticed a familiar face and fish…

Funny thing is that I submitted that photo to them last year and never heard a word back. Didn't know if it would win their monthly contest but thought it might at least get to the Facebook page.

I was actually a little pissy about the perceived snub although I never made those feelings known to PM.

She mentioned that she is now a much more famous fisher than I am.


True.

Keep meaning to send it to Gillespie's show, but you have to print a photo out and mail it in.

How 1980s of them.

He drives me nuts trying to have that show on coz he's such a spaz in the boat, but they put all those photos up at the end and it would be funny to get her on that.

Plus… I'd get fishing stuff from F&F.

Gotta do that this fall.

Oh man. Are you going to get some endorsement patches to wear on your vest?

But who wouldn't enjoy a relaxing afternoon trapped on a boat with this guy?




I keep waiting for the episode where Pete just shoves him overboard, and then starts the engine...
