Wednesday FotoFocus...Go Fish

Many men...and women...go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
  ~Henry David Thoreau~

We went Fishin' on The Concho River!
Here's what HiHoney did!
He and Henry David Thoreau think alike!

Another of HiHoney's Fishin' Philosophies...
Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. 
Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day. 
Here's what I did!
There will be days when the fishing is better than one's most optimistic forecast,
 others when it is far worse. Either is a gain over just staying home.
  ~Roderick Haig-Brown, Fisherman's Spring, 1951
What Our Bobber did!
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot. 
~Steven Wright~
So true Steven...that's why I always Go Fishin' with NeatONikon.

Then I just look like an idiot standing on the bank baiting the fish to jump out of the water and say Cheese!
~CollectInTexas Gal~

Anyways, if you really wanna know the truth...
Fishing is the sport of drowning worms. 
A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work. 
Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught.
Besides...of all the liars among mankind, the fisherman is the most trustworthy.
  ~William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954~

So, Go Fish, Ya'll
And may the holes in your net be no larger than the fish in it. ~Irish Blessing

    So this is what retirement is like? Ha! Ya'll are so cute....together!

  2. Looks like a great way to spend the day! ...and I trust you had dinner plans besides fish:@)

  3. I love fishing even if I don't catch a thing...just spending time with my hubby away from the hustle and bustle of the world...

  4. Hi Sue, I just happened to see your comment on the painting. Thanks for the chuckle. I do love the flowers. Smile. No chimp art for me.!!!

    This post gave me a good ole belly laugh. You and I think the same about fishing. UGH! However, the photo shoot made it all a perfect day. Did you eat fish for supper?
