What is better....


Recommended Posts

Which is better, the anticipation of the big fishing trip or the actual fishing... I am heading up to Canada on my annual trip and I find that the anticipation is about as good as the fishing... I sit here dreaming of the ten pound walleye... The great thing about the anticapation is that anything is possible... Well either way, I can't stop thinking about it....

I know that the day I loose my anticipation for any outdoor activity, especially Hunting and Fishing, is the day I hang it up.

I feel the same level of excitement today as I did when I was a kid--waking up every hour to stare at the clock hoping it is FINALLY time to get on the road.

My Wife teases me today because I wear my wristwatch to bed the night before I leave on a trip! That way, I can just look at the dial to see the hours ticking away rather than sitting up in bed to peer over at the alarm clock grin.gif

216 hours until I leave for my first trip to Lake Vermilion. Cliff W.and MuskiTom have been booked. I'm geeked.
Putting the watch on for the nite before is a good idea. I'll have to try that.

The anticipation. I keep buying Powerball tix 'cause I like the possibilities. My next trip is 30 hours away and I can hardly sit still. Will I find river 'eyes? Will I fish new water successfully? Will I be able to find a passable channel? Will I get a whopper hillbilly nite-bite from shore by lantern-light? Will I get rained out and spend the weekend in the truck reading a Stephen King novel? Will Jodie Foster wander into my camp and ask me to teach her to fish?

Ya never know.

If Jodie shows up in a fishing camp, she'll probably have Hannibal Lector with her, so you maybe should wish for Meg Ryan. Good luck on your trip

Shore lunch with Hannibal Lector - now that's a distasteful prospect. Meg is cute - but Jodie is smart! I bet she gives great conversation!

Thanks for the wishes of luck! 30"! Nice fish, man! 28 hours to go. Tonight I pack the truck and rig the rods. Tomorrow I work all day with one half of my brain on the road - and by sundown tomorrow night I'll be sittin' on the river bank with a coleman lantern, a little bourbon, and hopefully a bait-clicker that just won't quit. It's Dad's 1st annual Weekend Away From It All. Life is good.

Anticipation is great, but catching a true trophy can't be beat.

My 30 inch Walleye (previous largest 24") had me breathless for a moment or two.

good luck and have a safe trip.

When it comes right down to it memories come in three phases. Anticipation of an wonderful event to come, the realization of what is anticipated and the memories of something wonderful. Personally I believe that the first and last are best because they last the longest.
