I really just fish, and could never see it any other way. I have no intrest in entering the corporate world when i get out of college. I will probably end up as a subsistence farmer in outter mongolia or argentina, whatever keeps its fishery good until i get out of college. Living on a boat sailing the world following the migrations of gaint bluefin tuna with a 20wt is also a possiblity. Surely one of the three. Right now i sell flies and do construction as little as I can manage and still have barley enough buck to make it to and from fishing places. Food is good too. I can tell I'm going to be really really poor when i grow up. The rest of my family is composed of doctors, lawyers, and a software developed. My father is a jazz musician.
Network manager for a large regional heavy civil construction company. We have offices in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska with job sites as far south as northern California and as far east as Montana. I get to visit all of these places from time to time and get to fish them when I go. Not a bad gig.
I was in the Navy for seven years, I did Jet engine mechanics, antisubmarine warfare and SAR. then I worked for Boeing for a few years in Everett, on the 747-400 project.Then I moved to Penna and went back to school and now I am working for US Bank in the E-commerce department making web pages. If I had it to do over again I would be a farmer or a rancher. I know the work is hard and there is no money, but it would be a lot more rewarding. right now I am planning to open a fish camp when I turn 55, I got eleven years to go, but when I open the place all are invited.
I'm a Dirt-bagger. I get no respect. I suppose I could have chosen some other profession with more class and higher pay, but not only do I call the shots, all those women that used to chase me when I worked a respectable job now leave me alone because I have no money, dress like a homeless bum, drive a beater, don't play guitar, won't humor many of their magazine-inspired idiosyncrazies, etc. etc, and now I get to go fishing whenever I choose to tear myself away from the fascinating but often lonesome world of dirt-bagging.
I'm a web application developer currently working on software that makes it easier for lawyers to sue each other- sigh. At least I'll never be outa work. I also teach web development and xml classes 2-4 nights a week. My aspirations are to eventually be able to fish at least 5 days a week after opening a transvestite dance review/club to compete with Michigan Guys and Mingo's all male strip club. Oh, and then to hire Mingo's avatar to be my bodyguard
