You Might Be a Fisherman IF:

By Jim Porter

The following traits of a dedicated angler were complied from years of wasted childhood and adult life spent chasing little green fish. If the only 50% seem to apply to you, you are obviously in a heap-o-trouble, boy. I would feel sorry for you, too. But, then, who am I to fight destiny.

  4. The local tackle shop has your credit card number on file.
  5. You keep a flipping stick by your favorite chair to change the TV channels with.
  6. You get 40-to-Life because your teenager asked you to buy a Jet Ski.
  7. You named your black lab "Mercury" and your cat "Evinrude".

  13. You think MEGABYTES means a great day fishing.
  14. You send your kid off to school the first day with his shoes tied in a Palomar knot.
  15. Your wife wears green lipstick so you'll kiss her more.
  16. You think there are four seasons - Pre-spawn, Spawn, Post spawn and Hunting.
  17. Your $30,000 boat's trailer needs tires, so you "borrow" the ones off your trailer house.
  18. Your wife tells you she is feeling "frisky"; but, you don't know what she means until she explains she wants to spawn.
  19. You trade your wife's car for a smaller vehicle so your boat will fit in the garage.
  20. Your kids know it's Saturday - because the boat is gone.

  25. The Parks Commission gives you a 100% attendance certificate for weekends at the boat ramp.
