It started as a kid on my Dad’s sailboat I don’t know if you remember when there was that cute hairstyle where you wore your pony tail on the side. Well I was fishing with my Dad in the bay when I caught a fish for the first time.My excitement was too much and I was reeling it in as quick as I could when my pony tail got stuck in the line. The only way the fish could come up was just pulling the line up as quick as possible so there I am Pony tail all stuck in the line with this fish bloated from coming up too quickly. Strike one fish experience.
Next were living in Wyoming fishing all the time It’s a spring day when were at Lake Desmit. Have you ever gone fishing with a baby? Well hubby was having fun but between the infestation of grasshopper hopping all over the place like a scene from Little house on the prairie and the locusts I was not a happy camper so with a disgusted face at the situation. I hate grasshoppers!I finally had enough.
“Let’s go Home” I explained to my better half. Hubby explained “As soon as I catch a fish!”
Well fisherwoman that I am I looked at the lapping water at the shore saw a calm area and said “If I was a fish that’s where I would be” I am not kidding within a minute Jack caught the biggest trout of his life.
Yes we got to pack up baby and fish and go home after that.
Megan walks up to the fisherman and explains how were celebrating my birthday and so he says “lets have your Mom catch the fish” I felt like a kid it was so funny he taught me how to catch the fish then took me behind the counter as I waited for a fish to come flying at me. All I could think I had better catch that fish! It’s important to hold tight it’s pretty slippery and heavy.
I haven't laughed so hard in so long well when that fish came flying at me and I didn’t even realize that there was a crowd watching me when I caught it they all cheered!!
It was such a funny experience. There is something about losing your inhibitions when you know you’ll never see these people again. So here’s more pictures of Seattles Pikes Place Market which is full of interesting shops and such a feel like San Francisco to me.
He was making sure I knew how big it was before he threw the fish
I caught it!
