My thought of the day is, “Gone Fishing.” As a young kid I couldn’t wait for summer to arrive. “O” that feeling of freedom. That’s one thing I know we all have in common. Well the day after school was out I knew exactly where I was going. By 4:30 am I was up, and by 5:00 am I was already walking, heading for my favorite fishing hole.
I was reminded of this feeling this morning, when my son called me up and said, “Only 7 more days of school left Dad, can we go fishing next Saturday morning? I said the most common phrase used by parents, “We’ll see.” He replied with the most common phrase all kids use, “That means no.”
I guess it was about 20 minutes later when that old feeling of being his age hit me. You guessed it; I called my son up, and said that we would go fishing next Saturday morning. I know, I’m a sucker. Now it feels like I’m the one getting out of school in 7 days. Well this got me to thinking. Almost everyone likes to go fishing, so why don’t more couples go fishing together. Fishing is not a guy sport and it doesn’t leave you sore or broke after you do it.
What a great way for couples to spend a Saturday or a Sunday. You can find cane poles at most of your local hardware stores, and it is a cheap way to spend the day together. If you want to try a rod and reel, you can pick one up at Wal-Mart for around $20.00 already set up, so even if you and your partner decide to buy a couple, it will still be cheaper than dinner and a movie.
Fishing is a relaxing way to spend time together, not only will you have time to talk about things, but you might just catch dinner. If you are single and you like fishing, this is a great way to meet some nice guys that you will have something in common with. Well I hope you catch something, and for now it’s…
Just a thought,
