New Year’s Day has always been more than just a date on the calendar to this old angler. Did I just the say the “o” word? Well, that happened honestly. New Year’s Day is also my birthday.
It seems to rain on this day every year, which traps this outdoorsman in the office. I spend the time shuffling paper. Thoughts tend to wander over the past 12-months. Reflecting over the up and downs. These highs and lows share a common thread, fellow anglers.
The fellowship of these friends are the high points of 2012. Losing some of these friends are the lows. I always wish I had taken them fishing, here or there. It makes their funeral harder still.
Regret is a bitter pill to swallow if we do not learn from your mistakes. The second dose of regret will not taste any better.
Therefore, my New Year’s resolution is to fish more, with friends and family.
What are your resolutions for 2013?
Best fishes for a great new year. Blessings, -TJ
