The disease manifests itself in many ways: very strange fishing dreams, total lack of patience with others, constant clicking onto fishing reports and the weather channel, and addiction to reading fishing publications for prolonged periods of time... Combine this with an obsession with ordering almost any fishing gadget one can see in a catalog and you have one very sick monkey!
At last, I can claim that I'm out of the woods and feeling much better, thank you! Sort of like a remission of sorts. Despite the winter temperatures of 20 degrees and the two feet of snow, I fished the Provo River yesterday and found the cure. Not that I'm going to do it every day, mind you!!! Brrrr....
And I did get a little bonus for endurance!!!
Footnote: This post of course, is done "tongue in cheek"...You know that? Right?!!!
Awwww. All that's missing is a photo of a fish! :) hint hint. where da feesh!? :)ReplyDelete
Damsel, you'll find those words funny when it's 90 degrees out and you're standing knee deep in cold water. One day you will say to me, "What was I thinking?"ReplyDelete
p.s. great photo of my friend Barkley and whoever is standing in the refrigerator.
Owl...You made me do it...There's your B-Day fish! The picture wasn't that great due to frozen hands that didn't want to play with the camera too long! That one was back in the riffle very quickly.ReplyDelete
Cofisher...Ya ya, I know! I hate the heat...you will see me at 6 am fishing in the summer!! No kidding. The two feet of snow was quite a work out to tell you the truth...holy frozen fish stick!
One added note: That is what the back of my car looks like on a daily basis. Another sign of FISHITIS.ReplyDelete
You know, I seem to make it through the winter without getting "Fishitis". However come late May or early June, every year, I catch something called "The Bluegill Flu". I absolutely have to take time off work and find a cure.ReplyDelete
The back of the car looks perfect!ReplyDelete
Good job on getting out. great fish, the picture is just fine. Aint never seen "hooter" with a fish
Mel...I certainly hope that you don't go to work when that "flu" comes on!! (And usually you have it for at least 48 hours...) Ha.ReplyDelete
Bigerrrrr...You never know when you will spot some water as you travel down the road!! I believe in being prepared at all times.
Glad to hear you got out and cured that fishitis, even if only temporary. I can't wait to do the same!ReplyDelete
Steph...I think that my FISHITIS is gone for at least another month...brrrrrr!ReplyDelete
I have that same orange backpack... sitting right here with me. Daily, I use it to tote my computer. Frequently, it's actually a backpack for backcountry day hikes... Love the Madison (and I love that it's so close!). Nice work.ReplyDelete
