    Talking

    Some of these are personal experience and some are at least very reasonable for me. 18 best of the 30 or more I thought up.

    You might be a fishermen if:

    You've ever missed your own birthday party.
    You've skipped class in hopes another "class" was in session.
    You call out of work cause the water temps dropped over the weekend.
    You go into work to catch up on sleep.
    When waking up early to fish "five more minutes" never enters your mind.
    You only buy calenders that have the moon phases.
    Your car is a buggie.
    One last cast turns into 30.
    The Bass Barn is your homepage.
    Cabela's or your favorite tackle shop's website is in your "favorites".
    Your change jar is labeled "new lure fund".
    If your increasing tackle arsenal makes the words "more closet space" cross your lips.
    Fishing is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear words like: blitz, bunker, cow, mullet, rigs and weeds.
    You believe "Striper fever" is a real medical condition.
    Been in a super market's seafood section and seen a striper fillet and thought back to last fall and how "Mine was bigger".
    If fishing preceeds 3 of the 5 necessities of life(breathing, drink, food, sex and sleep).
    It's ever taken you more then 10 minutes to decide between this weeks groceries or that new rod and reel outfit.
    You see gulls hanging around in suburbia and get angry at them for "wasting their potential".

    Finally...

    It's 3:30am on a tuesday, you're still browsing the barn. Your alarm is set for 4:30 to travel nearly 2 hours to fish a "non hot spot" at the wrong time of day when the tides might be wrong cause you have the day off and want to wet a line in hopes of landing your first striper.. And in a moment of clarity you think to yourself " I might have a PROBLEM".... Well that may be, but I wouldn't have it any other way...

    tight lines, hope somebody enjoyed my ramblings.

    COME TO THINK OF IT, MY BOSS DIDN'T GO FOR IT EITHER! DOES THIS MEAN I MIGHT BE A FISHERMAN; OR IS IT THAT THE REST OF THE WORLD AIN'T??????
