    Would Prefer To Watch Paint Dry

    As a kid, in order to give my mother a "break" dad would take us fishing.  Not fishing by standing on a bank, or fly fishing... no he had two kids in a 25ft boat out off the coast catching the daftest fish on the planet - those that think brightly coloured feathers...

    Fishing

    I'm not into fishing.  I like watching my husband fish though.  I see him enjoy and have a passion for it.  While he's enjoying himself, I take the chance relaxing at the spot where we are and appreciating the scenary and calmness.
