A Brownie

If you've known me for any length of time you probably know that I am no fisherman. I happen to be married to someone who can work a fly rod like a pianist strokes the keys. He has a deftness that I lack. Sometimes I try and pick up a rod and fish along side him, but usually I'm off taking photos, exploring, or falling into the river.

Really I am a very clumsy person.

But, that's unrelated to fishing. Sort of.

For years I've tried, haphazardly, to catch fish. Never ever have I succeeded. It was a running joke, my lack of fishing abilities. However, this Memorial Day weekend I decided to put in an honest effort with the rod.

This afternoon, on our final day of our mini-vacation to our old hometown, I finally...FINALLY... caught a fish. A brown trout! I baited, casted, hooked, and reeled in my own little fish!

Okay, so it's nothing great, but I am proud that deep down some sort of fishing ability exists. Not a very large amount, because it wasn't long before I was back to exploring the river and taking photos.

Congrats on your first catch! We're trying to get motivated to go out and get fishing gear/licenses for the lake that's right out our back fence. It seems like the right thing to do.

Well congratulations! At least you didn't fall in, or maybe you didn't mention that.

Congrats. But I do have to say that even if I didn't catch a fish, I wouldn't mind standing in that photograph for a few hours soaking in ever bit of beauty.
