I’m not much of an angler. I enjoy fishing; I’m just not very good at it. I’ve always wanted to try ice fishing, so when Matt’s Boy Scout Troop setup an outing, I figured this was the perfect chance. To be honest, I can see the appeal. It was cold, windy and definitely icy, but it was a spectacular kind of winter beauty. We didn’t have much luck. I managed to get one fish on the line, but he got away right before I landed him. Matt didn’t fare much better. It was unfortunate because the guy next to us pulled out six in a row! But, such is the fishing life I guess. All in all, it was a lot of fun and I’m definitely willing to give it another try someday…but maybe with one of those cool little shantys!
