Default The wives don't understand...

My buddy and I were laughed at for fishing in the front yard last night. We busted out the 9WT and made some casts in the grass in preparation for our trip to Michigan in a few weeks. Our wives thought it was funny and were attempting to get pictures of us fishing for grass to post on Facebook. We foiled their attempts to make fun of us in social media but they still had a good laugh.

They just don't understand us.

No wife to speak of, but my some of my neighbors look at me like I have 3 heads often when I'm in the back yard casting. Some of them are used to it by now.

My wife fishes along with me 100% of the time I'm on the water -- in all weather and stream conditions. I can't say I relate to this .

My wife only fishes once in a while and only while the fish are biting. She thinks I am crazy.

That is awesome!!! I would love to have seen that. Heck, I would love to do that. I might grab an old cheapo outfit from the garage and try to catch the mailman.

Alright now........y'all git your butts back up here in the yard, and quit playing in the street....................seriously, I have heard that hooking those october albacore off the N.C. coast are like hooking into a car going down the interstate!!! Yes, I have pondered the notion of playing in the street myself!!....and no, my wife doesn't understand either......why so many flyrods, and what is this whole catch and release thing all about?????

My Facebook account is loaded with comments like "Ya mean you didn't even keep one fish and eat it???" "Please tell me you ate some of those!!!"

Lots of people don't understand C&R!!!

Default Re: The wives don't understand...

My wife just looks the other way when I do that. The neighbors on the other hand, are generally confused. One neighbor bet me I couldnt hit his car as he drove away......challange accepted!! I hit the back glass of his SUV dead center with a giant thud from a 10wt saltwater line. He seemed alittle unammused I was actually able to hit him. I also get asked how the grass and trees taste when I catch them....they are usually a bit rough to get down!!!

I think they understand us about as well as we understand them.

Next time, tell them you are fishing for grass carp.
