Fishing Buddies

Golfers are often associated with fishing and I am not talking about fishing golf balls from ponds. Maybe it's a coincidence that golfers love fishing, but I noticed besides PGA tour players, many of my golfing buddies are also avid fisherman. We must be addicted to the challenges?

Anyway, over the weekend, a regular golfing buddy told me that he was so trouble by his wife that he decided to write into one of those weekly columnist for advice. Here's what he wrote:


Dear Abby,
I have been so blessed in my life. Great parents, great wife and kids, great job, and great education.

When I finally retired, I could hardly wait to spend time enjoying my favorite pastime -- bass fishing. I got my own little fishing boat and tried to get my wife to join me, but she just never liked fishing. Finally, one day at the Bait &Tackle Shop, I got talking to Sam, the shop owner, who it turned out loves bass fishing as much as I do. We quickly became fishing buddies. As I said the wife doesn't care about fishing: she not only refuses to join us, she complains that I spend too much time fishing.

A few weeks ago Sam and I had the best fishing trip ever. Not only did I catch the most beautiful bass you've ever seen, only a few minutes later Sam must have caught his twin brother! So I took a picture of Sam holding up the two nice bass that we caught and showed the picture to the wife hoping that maybe she'd get interested. Instead she says she doesn't want me to go fishing at all anymore! And she wants me to sell the boat! I think she just doesn't like to see me enjoying myself.

What would you do? Tell the wife to forget it and continue my hobby or quit fishing and sell the boat as she insists?

Thanks,
A fisherman


P.S. I have enclosed the picture of Sam showing off the bass that we caught.

Dear Fisherman,

Get rid of that narrow-minded wife!
