It has been a long time since I last went fishing. I used to when I was a kid and my father would take my brother an I out in an old, top heavy motorboat. I remember receiving a green tackle box for my birthday one year, and the obsession that it sparked in me.
Last week, I was hiking by a local lake and saw two anglers at the shore. On an impulse I returned to town and purchased a rod and tackle.
Today, I had an opportunity to stop by a promising site on my way home from out of town. It was an overcast, yet warm day which threatened rain and I had the small beach to myself. Only three casts in and dinner arrived at the end of my line in the form of a 12″ rainbow trout.
