Ok, that is not proper English, but it totally defines this picture. You see, my first outing to the lake to fish was a question in my mind. I had never fished before and actually thought, "What the heck am I doing here?" By the picture you can see how I don't even want to touch this fish! I'm sticking it out as far away from me as I can and barely hanging on to it's tail! Ha. How times change...Now, I fish for hours to have a slight moment with my friend, the trout. Who would have thought. The OBN photo prompt wanted us to "post the photo that most likely will never find itself in a photo frame in your house." It would have to be this one, because it is so embarrassing that I ever acted this way! The River Damsel was afraid of a little fish...There's the sad story. But, once put on the river, everything changed for me. I was introduced to a fly pole, bugs and fish rising to the top to get a nibble. I now found the world that I loved and was in my comfort zone. It just took a city slicker to slow down and breath a little and enjoy the beauty around me. And boy, did I ever find out that I was wrong...Fishing is Fun!!! ;) A girl is entitled to change her mind...right?
It seems you've come a long way in you journey as a fly fisher. This photo is really funny.ReplyDelete
Jay ~ I am humbled tonight...Embarrassing moments. Just to prove I'm a good sport! Ha.ReplyDelete
Emily ~ Now that's a cool share =) Glad things changed for you when it comes to Trout.ReplyDelete
And yes, a lady can always change her mind about something...as many times as she'd like.
I think I have a few pictures of my wife holding fish like that...except she hasn't come around yet. Too funny.ReplyDelete
Great variation on the "long-arm".You were light years ahead of yourself!ReplyDelete
I like the picture! I've got one of my son holding a small trout like that. Hard to imagine that you were that way once.ReplyDelete
I thank my fishing peers who can forgive me for this one act of foolishness...ReplyDelete
Ha! It's all learning. There's a picture of my brother with the biggest trout of his life (about 16" or so) and he is gripping it like a 16" round of salami, SO AFRAID it might wriggle away before the photo was taken!ReplyDelete
I believe that (a girl can change her mind) is Princess Rule 3. Here are a few.ReplyDelete
Princess Rule 1 - The Princess is always right.
Princess Rule 2 - If the Princess is wrong, refer to Rule 1.
Princess Rule 3 - The Princess can change her mind at any time.
Oh, there's more.
Oh, I'm lovin' the Princess Rules!!!ReplyDelete
hahah. that poor fish...err..I mean girl. :) FISH CoOTIeS! yuck! :)ReplyDelete
Kind of looks like you were practicing the LDR! Tee HeeReplyDelete
Since OBN is getting everyone to embarass themselves I might as well join in. That's a classic Madame Damsel.ReplyDelete
Thanks you guys!! We all have our embarrassing moments, I guess.ReplyDelete
You're holding that fish like you just found it on the ground! You've come a long way. Now, if we can just get you to stop sayin' "pole"!ReplyDelete
Quill ~ You got me there, Quill!!ReplyDelete
Thanks to RD's use of the term "fly pole" I have finally come up with an official name for this addiction we all have. Wait for it..........wait........Fly Poler Disorder.ReplyDelete
