Default Re: How long are you out there ?

Ah! the days I could only fish full days on weekends and evenings during the week. I was a slave to my patients and my beeper. I wound up drowning 6 beepers and 6 cell phones. Now since I retired there are no restrictions. I fish when I want and have a "honey do list". Before open heart last year I would come home when it was dark now I just come home late in the afternoon. Been waiting a lifetime for this. It's the greatest stress reliever in the world. Your days will come. Frank

" If the fishing is good, I stay till I don't catch anymore fish.
If the fishing is slow, I stay till I figure it out and catch fish "


Same with me . I get off work @ 3:30 & sometimes I'll drive an hour to go to the stream , fish for a few hours & then come home. If I ever get a full day I'm out there sunup till sundown. ( I tend to lose stuff that falls out of my vest pockets after dark). I've gotten off work & drove an hour or so just to fish an hour & then turned around & came home at dusk...... (mostly when I think there might be something hatching) How about you guys .. How far will you drive for a little time on a stream????

I generallly play it by ear. I usually will fish until late morning and then come home and spend time with my daughter and wife. I enjoy my play time on the river but I like to balance it out with the family. If I fish in the evening it's usually right after dinner until dark. Once the bats start flying it's time to get out. I fish the Savage River in western Maryland and I'm 53. It's hard to stay out all day because it is a tough river to wade. Currents, lots of boulders and very, very slippery. Once I start to feel wobbly in the legs, it's time to get out or at least take a good break.

When I fish for trout I have to travel quite a bit, so I stay out there for four or five hours.

When I fish saltwater and have to cast a heavier rod, I usually fish no more than three hours.

I guess if I could fish every day I wouldn't mind just fishing for a couple of hours.

When I was single staying out all day was the norm. Now getting out for just a morning or evening makes me feel lucky. Although now that my kids are getting older the fish'n time will get longer.

Usually, I let the fish tell me how long to stay. Sometimes I have to let my Bride tell me how long to stay
