going fishing


Ignored Member
I think I am going fishing. I know what fish I want to catch. I pretty much know what river I am going to fish. I also know basically where the fish will be. I know which rod I am going to use. I have a reel for the rod. I also have a couple of lines I think will work for where I will be fishing and what I am fishing for. I have a couple boxes of flies that have worked in the past. I am going to be fishing from a boat which has worked for this type of fishing before. I have a camera that will work for taking pictures if I catch any fish. Since I am fishing from a boat I don’t need waders or boots. I have a rain coat that worked the last I was in the rain. I will be making a lunch to take along and have the cold beverage of my choice. I will be fishing in a section of the river that is open according to WDFW fishing regulations and the fish I want to catch is legal to fish for in the section of river I will be fishing.

Have I forgotten anything?

Smells like low tide.
I'd bring my cell phone, turned off so it won't ring. But its there if I need it to call in any observed poaching activity.
Maybe a favorite microbrew or a flask, to celebrate when you bring to hand a really good fish.

Me! I'll even bring the cigars and scotch... and my own lunch of course.. since you already made yours!

You forgot to announce an open seat invitation. That kind of fishing makes for a good social experience, which is hard to have when fishing alone. Yet I understand fully the benefits of fishing alone. He who fishes alone leaves when he damn well pleases. I actually like to fish with others, but I loath planning and coordinating with others - too much like work.
