Go Fishing Day
When : Always June 18th
Today is Go Fishing Day. Now, this is my kind of day! It's a day to go out and bring home a healthy, tasty, meal for the family.
Fishing is hard work. The pressure to bring home a "mess of fish" to feed the family is almost unbearable. After all, as the "Hunter-gatherer" of the family, you need to bring home the meal, or the family might starve. The wife doesn't appreciate the difficult task of fishing for long hours under all sorts of weather conditions. The wife thinks we're just out having fun....yeah, right.
Celebrate today, on the shore or in a boat, with a fishing pole in one hand, and your favorite beverage in the other. And, don't go home until you have caught your limit!
The Origin of Go Fishing Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We were hot on the trail of the creator. We discovered his address. We travelled to his home. As we came up to his door to ask about his creation of this day, we saw a sign on the door. It reads "Sorry, we are not home. I've gone Fishing!"
The first American fly-casting tournament was held in Utica, NY. on this day in 1861. Perhaps this was the beginning of Go Fishing Day!?
