At least three times a week I have the honour of listening to my boss and his fishing mate talk about all things fishing. Hence the reason why they are fishing mates.
I have come to the realisation, through various phone calls etc, that fishing is a most exciting hobby. Although I don’t understand any of the fishing jargon, the excitement is in their voices. My boss takes at least one day off a week to go fishing, his wall at work is covered with pictures of him and his latest catch, instead of newspapers to read at lunch we have the latest edition of “Club Marine” and instead of spending/wasting his time writing meaningless posts online, he spends his hours researching which rod is hot this week!! Which is obviously a much better use of his time. Perhaps we can all learn a lesson from this.
Back to my point, trust me, I have one.

Has anyone considered a fishing trip recently? If so, I’m keen.


It usually takes a lot for me to become motivated about something. I’m actually quite surprised and embarassed. All it took was some eavesdropping on my part and one man’s passion for his hobby.

I shall forgive you if you find this topic so boring that while reading this post you have found no urges to comment 🙂

  1. the only time i’ve been fishing was as a small child with our alcoholic babysitter. it was down at manly pier – i slipped, cracked my noggin on the steps and had to have 4 stitches in the back of my head. i still have a bald spot where the last stitch was.

    point is – you should have seen the one that got away!

  2. Hahaha.. Aw. I hope you’re next fishing trip goes better. That is, if you haven’t been so emotionally scarred that you would still go on a fishing trip.

  3. Stephen and I love fishing – although we don’t tend to go a lot but I think this is a timely reminder that we should!

    You should organise a date for a fusion fishing expedition Steff – we’ll be there….

  4. Yep, I’m there. I have been fishing on a number of occasions, and whilst I am still to catch anything of any size, my faith in that imminent possiblitiy is undiminished:)
