Now how can she say vacations aren't about fishing. Ya only fished for 20 minutes. She probable spent more time in the shower. Sounds like my wife. Atleast you had a good time and stayed hydrated. Thats all that matters.
Great story spinner! Looks like you had a great time in spite of the brief time fishing.
I know about preparing for a fishing trip, my husband researches and ties bugs for at least a couple months before we head out for a vacation, in other words a flyfishing trip. As the wife of an obsessed flyfisherman, I've decided I simply have to join him and accept the fact that EVERY vacation includes fishing.
We don't travel to hunt, we have great hunting in our backyard!
I have always looked for ways to save money and gain skills. I have the firearms basics covered so I rarely buy firearms these days. But I do watch for bargains. Sometimes a little TLC with simple tools will let you bring an old gun back to life without investing a lot of money. One such find was a side by side 12 gauge marked “W.
