"I don't need an excuse to fish...just waking up is my excuse to fish."
–A comment on Facebook
In an ideal world, we'd always wake up at 5am, get on the water, and start our day by catching a few fish. The reality is, life gets in the way.
There are so many excuses not to fish. Sleep, family, work, (did I mention sleep?)––the list is long. That's why, sometimes, I need an excuse to fish. Without a little reminder, I can get swept up in current of a typical day.
For those, like me, who need a little push, just a quick pause before stepping into the river on a cold winter morning, here is your excuse.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
