    Default What are you scared of?

    After reading Owl's post about the snake (good for a laugh if you haven't read it yet) got me thinking what are folks scared of?

    For me, it's spiders. Any spider. If there is a spider in the house, my wife or son has to kill it. Don't like them, don't want to be around them, and do my best to avoid them. A spider crawling on me will cause me to scream like a little girl and go running flailing my arms about in some kind of "get the spider" dance.

    So, what's it with you guys and gals?

    Smile My wife

    When I've been gone fishing too long

    Had a salamander scare the **** out of me Wednesday as it moved when I grabbed a rock and slithered off. That rattler I almost jumped on 2 years ago made me "scream like a little girl". Not really afraid of anything, but the unexpected tends to throp me every now and again.

    Snakes,I dont like snakes of any kind.If I get to close before I see them they all scare me pretty good.

    2weight I could have swore I was following a bigfoot or a man with a huge foot up the creek the other day,I tried to catch it but lost the tracks somewhere.

    I am only afraid of ticks. I wish each and everyone of them a slow and painful death.

    It scares me when the river starts talking to me.

    That happens to me every time I go!

    Snakes scare me if I stumble upon them unexpectedly. Many years ago, I was climbing out of the river between the dam parking lot and the upper canoe launch and came face to face with a beaver in its den. That was interesting...

    Talking What scares me the most???

    The possibility of my wife finding out how much all my gear really did cost as compared to what I told her it cost...then too there are those drivers between Florida and Tennessee that try to get in my way as I am driving toward the mountains to fish.

    had a beaver come on me one time before daylight down by the log @ millers island. I was trying to ty on a fly in the dark, Look down and a beaver was three feet from me. I screamed like a girl, he made a noise that probly amounted to a scream from a girl beaver and we parted ways with a tail slap. Thats my beaver story and Im sticking to it.
