Do Yo Like to Fish?

Are there any avid fishermen and women out there reading this? Just love to fish, whether you catch anything or not, getting up at 5am, digging worms for bait, making sure all the fishing gear (lines, reels, hooks etc) are all ship-shape and ready to go. Then arriving at the spot and throwing the line in, and waiting.. and waiting. Hours pass and you catch nothing, apart from some snags and a few small nibbles that just take your bait. But you love it anyway, the fresh air, getting away from it all (or the wife), or an excuse to drink beer either accompanied or alone.

Or maybe you are like me, think fishing is a wasted pastime unless you are actually catching fish! This poem more or less expresses how I feel at the end of the day if I go fishing.

Fish For Dinner

Lazing on the river bank

Sipping beer beneath a tree.

Fishing rod wedged in a rock,

I'm relaxed and worry free.

Suddenly the line goes taut,

A fish takes up the fight.

I jump up quick to grab the rod (and spill my beer)

Damn, ...*#%#* ..beans again tonight!

After catching a speeder…

Policeman: “I’m sorry sir but do you know how fast you were going?!”

Speeder: “I was going the same speed as everyone else!”

Policeman: “Ever go fishing?”

Man: “Yeah…”

Policeman: “Ever catch ALL the fish?”


Where did Noah keep his fish?

A multi-storey carp ark

      Thank you Flourish. I'll admit, fishing's not my forte.

      I love this Jodah! I was there fishing with you and enjoying a cold one. Hopefully you had beans with wienies when you got home. At least that way you'd get a little protein. LOL Have a great weekend!

      I love it, I love it, I love it, guess you might say I really love it. I think you wrote this just for the Halibut and I fell for it "Hook Line and Sinker"

      Blessings my friend.
