                   Fishin advice tips &
thoughts about the fishing conditions

 

   It would be hard to picture life without fishing.
 People who do not fish do not understand the
therapeutic value of fishing, losing yourself to
 the motion of the waves and just relaxing.
The best things about fishing is where you do it,
 and that you do not have to carry a score card.
