To all the head we’ve lostIf you mean get chicks to leave you because you pursue a hard to get fish with more vigor than them maybe. I've literally trashed relationships over these things, these fish. I mean at the time I thought I was righteous and ladies were just unreasonable but I'm more well rounded now. I was just so in the depths of a constant chrome binge I couldn't see it. I lost some good ones......... Ladies and fish. Both beautiful, unique, individual in their markings and worthy of pursuit. I had not learned balance. I was young, dumb, and selfish. I'm still dumb and selfish at times but I'm recovering ever so slightly and getting older all the time. I mean not as old or as wise as @Salmo_g but older.
PS. Salmo you do not cross me as old. You're too able and have to much a sense of humor to be a crusty old guy. Some people never get crusty and old. You could be one that doesn't.
In all honestly finding balance is a big challenge. I’ve been lucky enough to find an amazing woman who puts up with my disappearing all weekend most of the time. As long as I don’t leave my smelly waders in the house.
