Default Finally got my hunnie into a set of waders

Finally got my wife into a set of waders and out on the lake for some casting practice. The Bass are there, but ducking the flying crystal bugger and adjusting her cast left little time to actually fish.
We had a great time and it was certainly better to see her instead of my ugly fishing buddies (sorry guys...) Maybe next time we'll get those waders in the water.

Swril,

I had to switch my wife over to the fly rod and last year I got her her first set of breathable waders. No more complaints about being too warm in the neo's. I hope you can keep her into it.

I hope so too. This means I get to buy more gear I'm already checking what I don't have doubles of. Plus I reel with my right hand so shared reels would be a pain...

DIAMOND STUDDED WOOLY BUGGERS...

Actually I've been a saltwater fisherman my entire life and she never wanted any part of that, heavy gear, slimy bait and running out at at 1AM to catch a full moon and the right tide didn't interest her.
I started salt water fly fishing a few years ago and still no interest. This year I started fishing large mouth bass again (I haven't fished fresh water in about 18 years). I took her with me scouting all the lakes and ponds I fished as a kid and she enjoyed the scenery, ponds, trees, ducks, geese and before I knew it she was ready to put on some waders.
My best advise is leave the rods home and take a day to check out a few fishing holes, if she enjoys the trip you'll probably get her to fish next time out.

Default Re: Finally got my hunnie into a set of waders

My wife has always jumped into everything I do 110%. However, she only
wants the fun part of everything. Sailing: I spend an hour getting the boat
ready, and then she takes over. FF'ing: I get all the gear strung up (more
of a pain than it sounds!), and then she fishes. We've been fishing together
since college, and she's never once tied a knot of any sort. When we canoe,
she does paddle, but it makes little difference . Oh well, there's never a
problem buying gear, or going out and having fun. Most men I know think I'm
the luckiest guy they've ever met. I'd have to agree with that....mostly

P.S. How many 47-yr-old women have you seen playing with R/C monster
trucks...LOL?????
