I'm age neutral
75, within sight of 76. I hiked up to fish what I decided was my last mountain lake last year, not because of the age, but because I weigh 93 pounds more than when I graduated from high school.
After long thought, I've decided that an optimum life span these days, barring painful and debilitating illness, is in the mid-eighties. So I'm hoping to get as much as I can from my last decade.
I had to Google "How old am I" to check and sure enough I was a year off.
Barely old enough to grab a beer - 21.
Interesting to see more "older folks" on here. I'm 37
Two words-Senior discount.
That would be the little known 'Mona Leslie' amirite?
And I truly do look like a wooden fish.
64 and still looking forward to new adventures as long as I can.
Been in southwest Florida for a few days to warm up a bit and caught my first Oscars on a popper bug (no Peacock bass - yet).
The alligators in these ponds get awfully curious with the fish at the end of my line. Glad we don’t have them in Puget Sound.
New fly fishing exploits keep me feeling younger than I am.
58 and feeling great
I have been celebrating my 38th birthday for almost as long as @Jojo but after some health issues a few years ago, I won't be joining her on any 10k's.
I ran my last big race last May. No more for me. I run only for health. Running is the only thing that I’ve ever been better than average at doing. But if I had a choice of what I am good at I would much rather be able to fly fish like you @Freestone . I don’t even love running.
I identify as 25.
I consider myself to be 33 with 18 years of experience.
