No Fish for Dinner

This little vacation is somewhat of a trial run for going full time in the building on wheels sometime in the future. What we're finding is that there are all kinds of puzzles to be worked out on a daily basis.

Like yesterday. We planned to get up early, strap the fishing poles on to the handlebars, fill our backpacks with snacks and fishing licenses, and get down to the river.

My front bicycle tire was flat. Hubby patched it. Trouble stringing his new pole. Finally figured it out. Anyway, two hours later, we went.

No fish. Not a nibble. No fish for dinner. Too late? Too early? We came back to the campsite, pulled out the Fishing for Dummies book to figure out what part of the river is most likely to hide fish. Okay, no laughing here. We are dummies! When it comes to fishing, that is.

We'll try again tomorrow...early!

At least it's a beautiful spot to fish even if the fish have swum elsewhere!

Awww, you should fish in the early morning and after four PM when they are hungry, and they hide in holes and grassy areas for shade if the sun is bright (depends on what your fishing for too)...I grew up fishing with my dad and now hubby and I fish during the year. We just went with Gordon to fish for Salmon and had the best time, come on over to Jersey and we will hang with you, no books needed, just bring your lunch :)
