Yes, I am not ashamed to admit I'm scared of spiders. I think I would have soiled my waders had I seen that thing on a rock.

My son is making crawling motions with his hands and laughing at my recoil as I type this.

Just thinking about it is making my skin crawl.

I seriously believe I'd rather see a bear.

a good scorpion would be nice. i've never seen one in the wild. a nice big brown trout would be nicer, though.

We have scorpions in TN? I'm scared to death of snakes, and I had a copperhead swim between my legs while I was fishing a few weeks ago. I think that was the closest I've ever been to passing out. And the thing is, when he realized I wasn't a log or some object when he looked back, he DARTED away.

It's nice to see my spider, snake and bear stocking program is progressing nicely. At this rate, I will have the Smokies streams all to my self for the fall season.

Unfortunately, Bill Gates couldn't afford to stock enough creepy crawlies and bears to keep me out!
