I spent many enjoyable summer days fishing from the deck overlooking the Big T, carefully rolling cheese balls, slipping them onto an Eagle Claw hook and flinging the lot into the river. I don't remember the fish caught, but there were a few. What I remember most is when the fishing slowed down or got boring, climbing off the deck in search of chokecherries for homemade jelly!
The old saying, "with age comes wisdom" must be true. While running the dating gauntlet, I made sure that any prospects were experienced fisherman as well, or at least wanted to learn. Pam enjoyed fishing and was interested in learning to fly fish; I was interested in teaching. The rest as they say, is history.
I relate my fishing history for a reason. The next (and long overdue) contest is going to ask you to relate your fishing timeline.
So, here are the rules: Write a synopsis of your fishing timeline. If you are a blogger, post it up on your site and link to Windknots and leave a comment with a link to your site. As usual, you must follow Windknots to participate. (It's FREE!) If you don't have a blog and would like to participate, write it up, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will post it for you and again, you must be a follower. The winning entry should relate unique, funny and engaging experiences.
I will pick my top 5 favorites and you will decide the winner via a posted poll. The contest will start tomorrow at 5pm Rockytime and end 5pm on Jan 11, 2012. Once the top 5 are posted, the poll will go up and stay until January 20, 2011 at 5pm.
The winner will get a $50 gift certificate to your choice of BassPro or Cabelas. So, get your motor running...
