    I always knew my husband loved to fish. That's one of the reasons I love him - I love to fish, too. Of course, I always differentiate between "fishing" and what I call "big boy fishing." "Fishing" involves a bobber, some beer, and plenty of sunshine. "Big boy fishing" involves things like jugs and the alarm going off at 4 AM. I like to fish...but when the alarm goes off before the sun comes up, I'm not going.

    We recently had our first child. On December 22nd (an entire week LATE, and if you're a woman, you know how bad that sucked), I gave birth to our son, whom I named after my husband. The first thing my husband said to me as he held our new son was, "You did so good." This was followed by the necessary "I love you so much." And this was soon followed by, "I'm taking our son fishing this weekend."

    That was just one of 37,548 statements and/or actions that expressed my husband's love of fishing.

    But he really got me laughing last night, and I don't even know if he knows why. I was on the floor with the camera, trying to capture our son smiling on film. I must have taken 10 or 13 pictures. When I was done, I handed the camera over to my husband so he could put the pics on the computer. But before he would do that, he had to take pictures, too...not of our son, but of his fishing pole.

    So, in a camera full of baby pictures, there are several shots of one of my husband's favorite fishing poles. (Now, mind you, my husband has about 10 fishing poles, but there are only 2 types. There is his favorite fishing pole, and the remaining 9 ALL fall under the category of his "other favorite fishing pole.")

    I'm sorry, but it just cracked me up. And as I was flipping through the pics of our son and his fishing pole, I realized it was pretty perfect...the 2 things he absolutely loves.

    (But seriously? Pictures of his fishing pole???!??)

    Welcome to the BOC/USCA.
    Maybe in a few years , all 3 of you will have sets of 'favorite combos'.
    Until then , it's the baby's word against everyone else's.

    Welcome!! Congrats on the baby boy!! That is just too funny about the pole! What can ya say....lol..... some men have their "toys". Eventho catfishing equipment can run on up there in cost at times, at least It is not as pricey as other big boy toys!...............and I must say at the last Pickwick gathering a member showed me and Leslie (punkin570) his pole and yes he was just as proud as anyone could be. Must be a man thing..LOL:boy:

    welcome! from a mans point of view fishing is a passionate hobby. i love it so much i dream about it. but our first and foremost love is our family and i want to congratulate ya'll on your new addition to the family. i know your hubby is proud of his rods but wait till you see the smile on his face when your son catches his first fish i hope you have the cam ready for that cause that will be priceless. i remember when my grandson caught his first fish and i think i was prouded than he was. i hope i never lose that precious memory. i could not sleep the other night so about 3 in the morning instead of watching tv i went out and got my favorite rod and reel and brought it in and cleaned it and rerigged it. but i have not named it yet. ha ha. you will enjoy this family they are the best!
