    I guess I need more time in the stream.
    I wonder if I could get a doctors note so I could leave work early when ever I wanted to throw a fly.

    It's no joke...it's a physical activity. I did a bunch of hiking and fishing this weekend, and my legs are dead now.

    Default I'm envisioning a new diet plan

    Considering how much more I've been fishing this year, since we are recovering from the drought, I should be losing some serious weight.

    Joefred, thanks for the info! I quit dipping tobacco 3 months ago and I have gained 12#. Our family will be visiting the SM's next week and plan on fishing, so maybe I will burn enough calories to lose the 12# I gained?!?

    Enjoying the replies. Thanks to my son for putting me on to SparkPeople. He earned enough points recently to upgrade his fishing gear.

    According to these folks, after an hour of wading, you can treat yourself -- with a clear conscience -- to 1.5 Snickers bars or 0.6 McDonald's Big Mac...... With cheese!!
