Heads or Tails – Gone Fishin’

Heads Or Tails

The theme/prompt for THIS week, December 15, is:

HEADS - Gone Fishin’

Make any kind of post about anything you might see, use or do while fishing.

The last time I went fishing was when I was a teenager, and honestly I didn’t do much fishin’ even then.  I went with a group of people from church for a weeklong fishing, camping, and canoeing trip in Minnesota, and I think I actually fished once.  The rest of the time was spent doing the fun stuff like swimming, hiking, canoeing, and just generally goofing off and enjoying the river and the woods.  There were plenty of other people along who really enjoyed the fishing, so we had plenty of fish for breakfast, lunch and dinner while we were there.  They didn’t need my help.

So it’s obvious that fishing really isn’t my idea of a good time.  I know some of you really enjoy it – you know who you are (Misty, Tammy, Jenn, for starters) – and as I was coming back from taking Cory to Jazz Band this morning I was wondering what kind of crazy people enjoy fishing so much that they’ll go out on the ice, in the bitter cold to fish.  Of course, the people I saw out on the ice this morning had a building to get inside out of the wind.  Still, it’s got to be darn cold out there – downright freezing.  At least I thought so, until I opened my email to find the following video:

The people I saw this morning must have been downright toasty compared to these Crazy Canadians.

Heads or Tails is a fun weekly meme created and hosted by Barb (aka Skittles) – feel free to join in!


  1. Crazy is right. Sheesh.

    I've fished more than a few times in my life and enjoyed it when I did. It's been ages and ages tho.
