Something along the lines of lost youth being regained. Fishing season is closed for 3 months in the year. When we adults finally get out of the house, we act like kids who never seem to keep anything on our minds except fishing.
As for the 156 I'm with you on that one. Unless you divide those three months into the 156 years.
Hold that thought. The years do pass quickly. Pretty soon you too will be reading:
"so im young who care i still enjoy fishing."
It does get worse though. By the time you're at our ages, you will have developed an irreversible habit. Nothing like living in the responsible years. Responsible for everything. Paying for your own gear, bait, transportation, rent, groceries, etc.... I know you can hardly wait.
BTW: Hope you are saving up now I. That first buy can really deplete your wallet.
Fishnkid - It's great to see that wide eyed eagerness in your messages especially when you outfish some of these old salts.
As far as ages go, I got my Penn 8500ss about when you were born and it's still in excellent shape.
If you're really into fishing and are looking into colleges, check out Old Dominion University in Norfolk. It's close to all the spots here and it's a quick trot to the OBX. And if your interested in marine biology, we (odu alum here) have an excellent program.
I remember the days of leaving 4400 Club at 1am and heading to Lynnhaven pier (with adult beverages) for an all night fishing extraveganza. Ohh, those were the days.
hey chest2head thats a good idea. Another thing i was thinking about was the coast guard. That would give me experience with boats and plus i would be on the beach all the time. I used to live in that area so yea it wouldnt be like fishing in a new place. About the old rods. MY grandfather gave me a few of his rods and they work great. I prefer to stick to my newer 1s but if i have to use one of his(30 years old probably) i will.
