    South Puget Sound And Beyond...

    I grew up here in Washington State. Mom and Dad brought us here in the mid 50's. I've been here ever since. Dad taught us all how to live off the land, use what you take and to not abuse what's out there. We fished the local rivers, lakes, streams and ponds but my favorite place...

    Great day, sunny warm with light breeze,

    fished the beach with no luck though others were catching salmon on pilchards, moved to the lake and fished for flat head with no luck except for an undersize bream. Still beats the best day working!

    I'm catching fish again,

    it's been a while, and even if they are undersize or only fit for the cat there is still the minute of excitment while you reel it in when it may be a keeper.

    I do not even care if I catch a fish.

    I love sitting on the wharf with a couple of cold ones watching the water and the sky and unwinding.

    First Time Fishing = At A Family Vacation

    My parents made me go fishing when I was 11. I guess you could call it a family vacation. I had tried to do everything to get out of it because I hated spending time with my family because I was afraid of my younger brother. So my mom had finally convinced me to go. I still hated...

    I Grew Up Fishing

    My dad and grandpa took us kids fishing as soon as we were old enough to walk to the creek and hold a pole. Those were the best days of fishing. I like to go fishing every chance I get. Someday I might catch a big one to brag about to the grandkids if I ever have any.

    Murray River Fishing

    Spent a week or so out on the mighty Murray River. Lots of beer, and lots of bites. We all came home with a decent haul. A few Cod and nine Yellow Belly and six Redfin. The heat nearly killed us, but the beer helped in that regard. A nice barby. Isn't that what Summer is about...

    I love river fishing.

    It's calming to feel the water rush by your legs. Getting to unwind from a long week. Even if you don't catch anything it is worth it's weight in gold.

    When I tell people that I like fishing they act surprised because I'm the kind of girl who doesn't like being dirty or crawly, slimey, scaly, smelly things. I don't take my fish off the hook nor do I bait the hook myself. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy the catch! I also don...
