Over the weekend, I was just hanging out at the house doing what I always do, plotting to take over the world.
Then my sister called me, and said that she was in the neighborhood with her boyfriend. They came by and we hung out, had a few beers, and I tossed some pork chops on the grill.
Beer and Barbecue.
This was my first time meeting her boyfriend, and we got on the subject of fishing. I saw that the fish were getting active in the shallows of my backyard lake, so, I suggested that we go down there and fish. They were both game, so, I grabbed the only 2 rods I had set up. My 5 wt and an ultra light spinning rod.
Bluegill I caught.
After some difficulty with some tangled line on my ultra light rod, I decided, to let my sister and her boyfriend have a go at my fly rod. I gave them a fixed amount of line, and it was GAME ON! They both had the short cast down, and were catching fish!
My sister. I made her fish. She had a great time!
Her boyfriend is an Oakley fanatic, and he dug my white sunglasses. We deemed them my signature trademark when I go fishing, so, he suggested it was only right that they took pictures with fish while wearing them, because, I was teaching them. Ha!
It’s gotta be the glasses.
Told her this was the most cliche’ pose that she could make.
My sister and her boyfriend Javier and a bluegill.
While my sister was using the 5 wt, I had fixed the line on the ultra light, and tied on a small jig and bobber. My sisters boyfriend started using that, and he hooked up with a really nice bass! He was stoked, and so was I!
Taught him how to long arm.
Say Hello to my little friend.
Oh, and I overcooked the pork chops, because, we were busy catching fish. I didn’t overcook them that bad…nothing that some Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce couldn’t fix. It was well worth it. We all had so much fun! I think my sister and her boyfriend want to do this more. Awesome!
