Fishing Isn't The Most Important Thing In The World
If you don't believe it, ask my lovely wife Angie

I usually get in trouble a few days during the year, especially when I take the time to write
something on our websites as opposed to paying attention to something important that's going on
at home or with the family. Yes, I know, I could write the articles in advance. I could even use a
ghost writer and never as much as even have to think about it.

I can write articles anytime from almost anywhere, well, other than the middle of a trout stream.
Come to think of it, if I wanted to use a smart phone or pad, that's also possible. I don't have to
have access to my computers to write articles. I can even publish them from a remote location
anywhere in the World if I choose to do so.

That written, there's one thing for absolute certain.
The only way I can get by with it on Angie's
birthday is to write and publish it early in the morning while she is sleeping
. Otherwise, I
would be guilty of paying our websites more attention than her. So, it's about 4:00 AM and here I sit
writing this.

Come to think of it, even though the technology is available, unless it's my obituary, I
won't be writing something and publishing it from the middle of a trout stream.
I have
already stopped taking a phone with me when I'm fishing. That's one thing I like about fishing in the
park. The phones won't work in most places. Getting up this early has me rambling all over the
place so I'll write something of importance and maybe even interesting so I can get on with the all
day birthday party, tuning my guitar and, well, there's nothing I can do about my declining voice. At
least I can remember the 4 line happy birthday lyrics.

So, ladies and gentlemen, here's today's fishing article:
Fishing conditions in the park are excellent.
