Fishing... the best way to stay active... and drunk? Discuss

Post by Bubblez »

So our annual pilgrimage to Erie PA for steelhead. As i was anticipating the fun I couldn't help but recall the old adage

"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day...
Teach a man to fish and... he will sit on the shore and drink beer all day"
What would you rather do—leave a beautiful corpse, or a scorched Earth? Don’t live fast and die young. Live long and die hard.¸

—Sarah Szabo

I'm all for a scorched Earth policy. -- Me

Give a man a keg and he will drink for a day...
Teach a man to brew and he will be drunk the rest of his life


Sorry, I never fished in my life
Drinking heavily is a basic instinct

I love waking up early, packing up some coolers, and sitting by the water all day (or on a boat or canoe if lucky enough), just relaxing and fishing. Beautiful scenery, a stocked cooler, perfect weather...all of the elements to make for a perfect day. It's amazing how smoothly the beer goes down and if it's warm and sunny, how quickly it goes to your head. It's something about being on the water I think. Between that and canoeing, I had those beer coozies that had a neck strap so you could be hands free and yet, have your beer available at all times. So I think fishing is an excellent way to stay drunk, but for me, not so much active. I pretty much just sit on my arse and drink all day lol.
