Ever since i got my boating licence and my driver licence i have noticed that the amount of times i go fishing has gone down tremendously. I think it is because it is just not much fun as it would be if there was someone there. right now my only fishing buddie is my mom. My dad hasn't gone fishing with me in 2 years. how do i know this. it is because he hasn't gotten a licence for the past couple of years. well, after bugging him every few days to go and his response "I have no desire" he finally asked me if i wanted to go with him. i got so excited that was all i was able to think about while at school. i get home and there he is sleeping. so i wait a little while then asked him when he wanted to go. his response "u don't really want to go do u". then he gets up and decided to call one of his old buddies for a hour, then he has to check his stocks ect. by now it is 5:30 and he tells me it is too late to go. so i get really pissed off , and now i don't think well be going any time soon. sorry about the venting and getting off track but i just wanted to see how many actually fish for fun and by yourself.
