Fishin' Store

I went into Bass Pro Shop for the first time ever today. As I walked into the fly fishing section, I wanted to wave my hand expansively and tell the salesperson, "yes, I'll have one of each item in this entire area."
Thanks goodness, I came to my senses and only purchased a carrying case for my rod and reel, and a fish net.
I'm leaving my debit card home the next time I go just in case my resolve weakens.
They have an aquarium as big as my living room in that store. It was stocked with bass, bream, and a lot of other big fish I couldn't ID.
I'm going to try and upload a video that I shot with my iPhone. Lighting wasn't that good but maybe you can get the picture.
We're heading up to Nashville tomorrow to help a friend with a book promotion gig, so it will be Friday before I get to hit the water and try to catch a rainbow trout.
It's a good day to get out of Alabama as the temperature will be 97 degrees in the shade and that's not "feels like". It will feel a LOT hotter.

Also, I wanted to give a shout out to my lovely wife Jilda's blog. She dishes out nightly inspiration. She's actually a professional. She is a yoga therapist and she is doing incredible work.
If you like what you see, please follow her.

  1. You sound like my husband. He's like a kid in a candy store when he visits a Bass Pro. But then we both are. The one we go to has a StarBucks. So while he's walking around lusting over all of the hunting and fishing gear, I'm quietly sitting there with a smile, sipping my vanilla Latté.

  2. Hey Debbie,
    I could really do some serious damage to my net worth at that place.
    I'm glad it's 40 miles away :)
