What’s my fishing story? One word sums up all my fishing experiences. Frustration! Admittedly I haven’t fished often in my life nor have I fished recently. As a kid growing up my Dad and I used to fish for trout occasionally in a body of water not far from our farm. While it was fun being outside near the water, the stuck hooks in the rocks and unusually bad reel really put a damper on the day! We never had a boat so we had to cast from the shore and it was not uncommon to have to fight with the rocks to try and get the hook free, and in some cases, cut it all together. Other times a cast would not go so well and the line would not reel back the way it was supposed to resulting in me swearing profusely while spending several minutes fixing the darn thing.
So, after these experiences I realized a couple of things. The only thing I can catch is a head cold, I can only cast news and stories, and I can only get hooked on a feeling. I don’t think I’ve included this puns in a post before.
Regardless, be listening for your chance to win, be prepared to tell your fishing story, and happy fishing from all of us at 620 CKRM! That’s what’s on my mind today!
