Why is it at nigh 50 I am unwilling to go fish in the rain, or hike two miles to fish where I know few people fish? (Don't give me that 'old' b.s. I'm still denying it because I am not old, yet!")
I've had tremendous luck in the rain. On the way home from lunch today, in fact, I told my wife that this weekend's scheduled rains meant I'd be out fishing.
Wednesday, I spotted a (very) steep stream coming down the side of a mountain and just had to climb up there and fish it. It was full of small native brook trout.
Let's don't use the age excuse, either. I was 66 on May 18.
I love fishing in the rain, no one else likes going, as you get older and I wish I was 50 you need to work harder, bring the passion back into life and still dream and look forward to the morning, days are getting shorter, enough from this 61 year old.
definitely two points of view or outlook on life are being stated here and just wish I could quit flip flopping back and forth between those two viewpoints. Some days I feel like I can jump over the fence, and other days, well, I just stay away from fences.
Maybe you're right. I need help! Do you do psychotherapy?
Then again, my left thumb is barely working today (have 1 opposable thumb and 1 supposable thumb), 3 right shoulder separations that were treated and a few that weren't really, left was only once or twice, but I broke that forearm twice, couple of bike accidents, car accidents, ..., blah blah blah, ad nausium.
