i'm already crossing things off my list! okay, so i didn't actually buy this pole, but i got it for mother's day! the story behind this pole goes something like this:
i've never had 'my own' pole. i think i've always just used one of matt's. this year, all of the girls were getting pink fishing poles to go fishing with. i figured this was just the excuse i needed to ask matt for a new pole. so i did. he laughed when i asked him for a pink fishing pole. then he told me he was going to buy me a kid's barbie fishing pole. i was not amused. anyways, thursday came and we were packing our stuff up and sure enough, in a bag in the truck was the sweet barbie pole. i could not believe it. i was going to be the dork with a 2.6' fishing pole with a freaking push reel. nice. we got out to his parents and i was telling his mom about the pole matt had bought me. just then, i turned around and matt was holding the ugly stik! yep, that's right. he had bought me my new pink fishing pole - the ugly stik made by shakespeare! i was so happy! he said it was my mother's day present. aaaahhhh. :)
oh, and it must be lucky because the first three casts i tossed in - i caught three northerns! my grand total for opening weekend was five northerns. i didn't catch any walleye's - maybe next time!
