A common problem in life: Sometimes we focus in on one thing and something else suffers in the process. Conventional wisdom would define this as “Dropping the Ball” and lately, I seem to be dropping my blogging ball. It comes down to a simple math equation revolving around the hours in a week. Work (blah) + Fishing = not a whole lot of time left over for anything else.
Fish of course, are the real problem here. I like to hang out with them which dictates frequent excursions away from home and computer. I believe the fish warrant a little blame. They are out there (like right NOW)…in the river…just waiting for me to come visit them. Such little and big teases they are.
Not to mention. It’s a Fall Fly Fishing Fiesta out there right now and who wouldn’t want to join that party till the lights go out? Fall Fishing will be over in a blink of an eye and I don’t want to start winter thinking, damn, if only I had fished more in the Fall. I haven’t had anyone confirm my logic, but I’m certain my reasoning falls under the “Life is too Short” guidelines.
Plus, my waders have sprung a serious leak and although it won’t stop me from fishing in the winter, I’d like to enjoy as much non-frozen toes wading as I can now. (bonus reasoning!)
Does anyone know what the job description of a Trout Bum entails?
I might want to be one when I grown up.
