Aquatic Activities

This summer is all about the water!  It seems like everyone I know wants to spend most of their time fishing and/or swimming.  Pretty much all of my friends are going to get me to swim with them in various rivers before the break is over.

My first love is the beach and my second is the pool, but I'll even swim in rivers for these people.

I wasn't so sure about the fishing at first...but my friends keep trying to convince me.  I'm not exactly your typical "fishing" type.  I think one of the people trying to get me to go has figured that out.

Here's how the conversation went:

Friend:  "It's really not that complicated.  Anyone can do this kind of fishing.  Here, tell me: if you were fishing and you felt a big tug on the line...what's the first thing you would do?"

Me:  ..."Drop the pole?"

Turns out, the correct answer was "pull".  That was my next answer, I swear!

So I said that I would go fishing sometime before the summer is over.  We'll see how that goes...I'm sure that an after-fishing blog post will be absolutely required!

I wasn't a big fan of the fishing thing, either. I'm kind of a girly girl and if I can't wear heels doing something, I'm probably not going to like it. But once, you feel that tug and you do NOT drop your pole instead reel it in, it is addictive, I tell you. My one caveat is the fish always has to go back.
