There is something about the Spring and Summer that make men (and women) want to fish! I am not widowed like deer season, but I do end up with my fair share of alone time due to fishing adventures. Last year, my fiance bought a boat. The purchase process was more tedious than buying a house. Finally, there it was, sitting in my driveway… A 21 foot red and white Fish and Ski Skeeter. I was initially not thrilled, but I was surprised to find that I could enjoy the boat just as much. See, I am not a fisherman (-woman). It must be something about piercing the poor earth worms through the belly. UGH squirmy little things. I found great joy in the fact that we could tube off the boat, tan, swim and dock anywhere on a lake and jump off cliffs. Unfortunately, we only have a few months until the water is cold again, but it’s worth it.
Currently, my youngest four legged child, Moose, has been a member of my fiance’s fishing excursions. They go to the Lehigh River (in Eastern PA), and have been catching some “big ones”. I am not sure what constitutes a “big one”, but they seem to have a great time telling the stories! I’ll have to get some pictures, but for now, Gone Fishin’.
