I know there has to be some people on here who are fisher(men/women) out there. I love talking about fishing in general. I dont care if you are a purist dry fly fisherman, a trolling lake person, or a drinking beer and powerbating (maybe a little...).

When I get drunk I like to talk about fishing... GO.

I've not actually done it but it cracks me up every time I see it.

I grew up in South Florida so fishing is part of the life. We mostly fished for bass out in the woods. We didnt have a boat so most of my salt water fishing was from bridges and piers. There were many times in my life where I fished every single day in one way or another. I even used to wake up early before high school and fish for a while before school. Unfortunately, I dont do it as much as I want these days. I keep thinking I want to get one of those 2 man bass boat things that fit in my truck so I can fish the lakes near my house.

took my son (6yrs) and daughter (8yrs) fishing on a pond this weekend at my in laws. they both caught sunnies using an old school bobber and live worms. it fucking ruled. my daughter even learned to cast completely on her own and was getting it out about 30 feet. what a good time. fishing is my yoga.

I love fishing. I started off fly fishing and I still love it, but after some douche broke into my truck and stole all my flies...I have trouble getting into it...

So I did bass fishing for a few years and totally DUG IT! Colorado doesnt have the biggest bass, but its really fun to catch them.

Then a good friend of mine convinced me to try ice fishing a few years ago. I am totally addicted to it. I love catching big trout through the ice now.

Do you use a ice house or man up and go against the elements?

When I was a kid I had started trying to get into fishing, but as the only one in my family doing it, didn't last long. I think I got a summer outa it when I was 7 or so.

We take portable pop-up shelters in case it gets windy...but otherwise I prefer to sit outside.

No one in my family fished either...I had to do it though...I don't know why. I was just drawn to it.

@dcostello I hear ya man...getting my flies ripped off sucked. I literally lost hundreds of flies, mostly ones I tied myself. Its been really hard finding the motivation to tie again after such a big loss. I love winter flyfishing, so maybe I will give it a go again soon.

Btw, I LOVE small stream flyfishing for cutthroats here. Your day sounds perfect. Size doesnt matter as much as solitude and getting away from the sounds of civilization...

The only fly fishing I have done is for bass and it's really not the same thing. You just slap on a popper of some sort and make some noise. The casting/presentation process is theraputic though. It takes a lot more focus than just chunking worms so you are definitely more involved in what you are doing.

I did play a summer in Virginia and got to do some trout fishing in a small stream and enjoyed that a lot. I worked on a farm during the day and the owners of the property told me not to tell anyone about the stream and only catch what I was going to eat. So I used to go out there at lunch time and catch a trout and have her for lunch. Ahh the good old days.

Spent 2 hours at the casting ponds in Oakland yesterday. I ended up getting a casting lesson from a world class fly fisherman while there. Ive been fly fishing for 10 years and he made me realize that I still know nothing about my hobby. When I told him that, he said "son, ive been fly fishing for 50 years and I still know nothing... so dont feel TOO bad."
