So it’s January 5 and the air temperature is 66°F in beautiful Oriental. Nothing else to do so I might as well go fishing. With the first hard decision of the day behind me, I face my second one: boat or kayak? My wife decides she wants to go paddleboarding so I decide to use my kayak so we can go together. Wow, two decisions already made and it is just mid-morning. Then she asks me what creek? Man, another decision. There’re so many choices but we finally decide on Broad Creek. At the end of our adventure, Heather has paddled 10 miles and I have caught zero fish….but I did not fish the entire time. Sometimes when I go fishing, I put my rods away, sit in my boat, and just look around at this beautiful area where I am blessed to live. Man it’s sweet! The new year has arrived whether we wanted it to or not. Let’s all take some time to cherish the past, live in the present, and dream (big fish) about tomorrow. Oh man she’s done it. If you know my wife, I think I am talking like her now…but good advice.
