    Near 14 years ago I heard that and I looked her right in the eye's and said" M, I was fishing long before you got here and I'll be fishing if you leave" she dropped it for about two years and then I gave her the the old " you know how much you love your dogs? Well then you know how much I love fishing. So when you get rid of your dogs I'll stop fishing." The subject has never been brought up agian since.

    I don't have an ole lady and I am not one either but I am going to throw my 2 cents worth in here. :lol:

    My other half doesn't have to worry about me saying that to him since I am the one that is always talking fishing or saying lets go fishing.

    I don't have to worry about hearing it from him cause he knows better!

    LOL, just kidding on the knowing better.

    I don't think that my wife has ever said that. She likes fishing as much as I do and we go alot together. She even baits her own hook, LOL.

    my advice is dont make it look like that you are choosing fishing instead of her, give her the option to go and if she chooses not to go then it is her choice not yours. then she and you are both happy and a fishing you wil go.
    my wife is the one who suggested that I buy a new boat and tells me to go fishing.
    a happy wife makes life good and a unhappy wife will make life hell.

    mine said that almost 30 years ago and I ask her point blank .Which you want me to do go fishing ,putting food on the table or sit at a bar? your choice.No more said about the fishing or how long I'm gone.Try getting her to go with you ,she might learn to like it.

    How about trying a little thing I learned 16 years ago. I would leave to go fishing and she would whine a little, so, I started getting her something, a card, a little old flower, whatever. Anyway, I would start thinking about going fishing and I would stop at the store a day or so before hand. Get the card, or whatever, and bring it home after I went fishing. She liked it and tells me to go fishing now! Anyway, try to get her into fishing also, it's a helluva lot funner when you are both telling stories! Goodluck!

    :smile2: As long as i keep up with the honey do list, my wife doesn't mind at all, but i do always ask if she minds me going. She knows how passionate i am about fishing, and is very supportive, and she also knows how passionate i am about her. Weave been married 36 yrs., i consider myself a very lucky man.

    My wife really doesn't mind my son and I going fishing. She knows how much he loves it. Just this week we were talking about getting a boat. She said the only problem with getting a boat is, I'll never see ya'll again! I said of course you would, we would have to have clean clothes every once in a while!!!!!!!

    my wife dont' mind, fact she down right encourages it. after all i have to pay 20 bucks an hour to go, small price with 6 kids, she don't work outside the home (she has the toughest job on planet earth) so i don't mind paying her for some range time or fishin time or huntin time. She uses it as a savings of sorts, keeps track of what i owe her and when she has enough on the ledger i get to go camera accessorie shopping....

    dang i gots an expensive hobby.

    Good Post. I always tell people that there is 3 loves in my life, My kids ,The person I'm with and Fishing. I usually take the kids fishing with me ,My girlfreind doesnt like to fish, and i usually always catch fish, so 2 out of 3 aint bad. and yesa my girlfreind does all kinds of things to keep me home and not out fishing. but I always get my way.lol ( to a point :roll_eyes: )
