Fishing (with pics)

Sunday, June 30, 2013

Went fishing today in the river by the house, and after a short hike, up and down a creek that runs into it. I caught a rainbow trout almost right away, and didn't even have to resort to worms! (I usually switch to worms after an hour or two if I haven't caught anything with a lure).

So, if the fish looks a little brown for a rainbow, it's because he got away from me and flopped into the sand on the bank before I could get down stream to where DH was (with the camera). After he finally got the picture, we released my fish and went back to fishing.

About 10 minutes later, he catches one! Of course, it was about 1/2" bigger than mine, LOL!

I can't seem to get the picture of him with the fish uploaded. The site says the picture is too large to save. Is that because the fish is a little bigger, or what?

Anyway, if we had known he'd catch one right after mine, we might have had them for dinner, but the one fish wasn't enough for both of us, so both fishes got to swim away and continue happily in the creek.

All in all, it was a good day with lots of exercise and no worms lost their lives either!

    About the tucked in shirt and belt...that's what 7 months of SP has done. Those pants are only 4 weeks old and the belt was to keep them from falling off, LOL! Those are size 10's down from size 16's in December! Going soon to 8's! emoticon

    What a cute blog post! I too love to fish. We are hoping to go on an adventure this week. We usually fish by boat out on the Chesapeake Bay, but this week we hope to go out on the Indian River and catch some Spot or maybe a great big flounder!
We shall see. By the way, you look so slim in this pic. The fact that you can tuck in your shirt and wear a belt and look good is something that I admire. emoticon
