These are a Few of my Favorite Things

An baker's dozen of my favorite fishing experiences, in no particular order:

-watching a bobber dart out of sight
-hearing a chorus of frogs, bugs and birds at first light
-feeling the distinctive thump of a bass picking up a Texas-rigged plastic worm
-witnessing game fish herding a school of baitfish
-fishing totally by feel on a very dark night
-stepping knee deep into a cool creek on a hot day
-simultaneously seeing, hearing and feeling an explosive topwater strike
-seeing a smallmouth bass go skyward
-releasing a fish and watching it race away
-recounting a noteworthy catch with a friend who shared in the experience
-joining an enthusiastic angler on his favorite river or lake
-savoring redfish or salmon, fresh off the grill
-helping my children catch fish
