    My girlfriend Glenna had hardly ever fished before she met me. A year and a half later she is always asking me when I'm gonna take her again. We went to the Ohio last night so she could go one more time before she had to go back to college. She hasn't had a lot of time to do much fishing this summer because of work. The river was still really muddy and moving pretty fast and we weren't getting too many bites. Right at dark one of the poles finally bent over and it was on. A short bit later we had a flathead just shy of 10 lbs in the boat. Unfortunately it was the only fish of the night because we had to leave shortly after so she could get up to go to work this morning. She's hooked for life and is already trying to make time to get out on the river one more time.

    She's a massage therapist and makes her money by the use of her hands. She has to be real careful when handling fish. Its a good thing she's not as clumsy as I am, I don't remember the last time I went fishing and didn't poke or cut my hands with something...
