Here are 10 times when fishing just didn't go as planned.
Fishing gone wrong is the optimum phrase here. From Florida to Texas and, in fact, around the world, whenever we take to the water to relax and try our luck, some unplanned event always seems to take over.
Even grenade fishing gone wrong has a place on our list!
Russians dropping explosives from a fishing boat aside, whether we are on a fly fishing trip for big fish, or just bass fishing with friends, our favorite pastime is replete with the foibles and follies that are the stuff of legend.
Once you see some of the instances herein, you'll be reminded of how hard we try only to be stifled at the end of the day by things that we just cannot control.
Fishermen and women are a hardy bunch, but sometimes you just can't see these things coming.
Maybe we should just use a tank.
1. When you need to get wet for success
2. Sinker in the arm?
3. When a hook in the finger doesn't stop you from showing your feelings about it
4. Pay attention or lose
5. There's one in every crowd
6. Body English counts
This should never be allowed to happen. Ever again.
7. Fishing anger management
8. When you need Minnesota Viking Brian Robison to get the hook out of your hand
9. When that ice looked stronger than it was
10. When you nearly get taken out by a king mackerel
Fishing is as important to us as any outdoor activity we undertake, maybe more important! As with anything, we can never truly see the forest for the trees and sometimes have to take what nature gives us.
And, not surprisingly, what we give each other.
Enjoy the outdoors?
