I’m not giving up golf.
But I am taking up fishing. I got started today on accumulating the thousands of dollars of fishing gear needed to look like I know what I am doing.
Golfers have it pretty easy:
- Dress up in some Loudmouth Pants
- Snag a killer golf cart
- and get a snazzy bag
- to hold some used golf clubs
- and the golfer is good to go.
Looking good on the way from the pro shop to the first tee is paramount. After the first shot that only goes 18 feet, nobody cares about the details of which ball you are using or if you shoes are spikeless or if your clubs are the latest brand name.
But fisher people have it much tougher when it comes to the equipment. I’m just learning, but I will keep you updated.
Today I made my first purchase and hooked my first catch. Within minutes of each other.
I bought a fishing pole at a yard sale for $3.oo and hooked myself as I put the pole next to the yak in the car.
