Default Why Fly Fishing is better than Making Love

Or maybe this is a better way to look at this subject?!?!?




Why Fly Fishing is better than Making Love


Fish don't mind if you fall asleep in the middle of fishing.

If you go fly fishing and you catch something, then that's good. If you're making love and you catch something, that's bad.

Fish don't compare you to other fishermen. And they don't want to know how many other fish you caught.

You can catch and release a fish. And you don't have to lie, and promise to still be friends after you let it go.

In fishing you lie about the one that got away. In making love you lie about the one you caught.

You don't necessarily have to change your line to keep catching fish.

You can catch a fish on a 65 cent fly. If you want to catch a woman you're talking dinner and a movie minimum.

I often wonder, do fish go home and exaggerate how big the bait they stole was?

No they're too busy telling each other about how big the angler was that "got away" from them!!!!!
