Jim's been bugging me to go fishing with him for years and I've always resisted. See, I went fishing a couple times as a kid and never caught a fish. Ever. But Jim insisted I'd catch one with him, and he was right! And what a fish!

We went to Swett's Pond in Orrington for our first fishing trip. It's close to home and really beautiful there. Plus, there are some small-mouth bass and other fish in the pond. So, we gave it a shot.

I will tell you that it was more fun than I expected. What a rush! The fish battled hard but, in the end, I reeled him in. And he was a big boy! (for a first time, anyway) And I will definitely be going again! Oh, and to Jim I have to say, 'You were right, honey. I'm addicted!'
