I should have probably posted this a while ago, but I didn’t do it right away, and forgot.
An old mission buddy (and pro-fisher) Tommy Redd convinced me to go fishing. He had all the gear, so all I had to do was show up. I reluctantly agreed to wake up at 6AM on Saturday. We drove for almost an hour to Sixth Water Creek. Tommy was keen on leaving early, as being the second fisher sucks, as the fish are already scared (apparently). We fished till almost 4PM – time really went by quickly, especially since I didn’t have a watch or cell reception.
So, how long exactly did it take me to catch my first fish? About 25 seconds – granted I got lucky, and had Tommy peering over my shoulder.
