The only way to really enjoy your food is to suffer for it.
When you have to get up out of bed, step out into the cold, and work a little to get to your fishing spot before eating, the food tastes better than ever.
Not sure what to bring? Here's something that travels well and tastes great.
On The Water Breakfast Burrito:
–2 strips of mesquite-smoked bacon
–1 or 2 scrambled eggs
–1/2 an onion and 1/2 a red pepper, diced and sautéed
–A sprinkle of cheddar cheese
–Sriracha hot sauce
–Wrap it all in a flour tortilla
–Seal it up in aluminum foil to take it to the water
If you're veg, substitute the eggs and bacon for diced and baked sweet potatoes. Season them with taco seasoning––it'll blow your mind.
Ever wondered how I get people to fish with me?
Breakfast burrito bribery.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
