Ahhh, it's that time of year again. Time to head to Worms-R-Us, update your gear and head to the lake. My dad had me (and my younger sisters) on the lake fishing at a very young age. We learned rig our poles, bait our own hooks, land 'em, clean 'em and fry 'em up before we were ever given the opportunity to mow the lawn. These are the most memorable days of my childhood - fishing the lakes and rivers of south Arkansas with my dad. And, this is a tradition that we pass from generation-to-generation. My son, as a young boy, was also bit by the fishing bug.
There was a time when, if I wasn't fishing, I was watching fishing shows on television. Bill Dance was a popular sportsman host in our area, as seen in the video below. Some of these scenes are hilarious and remind me of all the good times I've had fishing. Do yourself a favor, get off your butt and go fishing. It gives you time to yourself in the great outdoors, whether you catch anything or not, you'll be glad you did.
Hey, the truck is pulling out - I gotta go!
