We just loved this post from Lunker Hunt's blog http://lunkerhunt.blogspot.com/. Let it be a salutory reminder to those of us who tend to suffer from the occasional 'senior moments'...!!
"As a seasoned angler, I've learned a few things. Preparation is key to a good trip, and I always check (and double check) my gear before hitting the road.
Imagine my surprise when we arrived at the Mackinaw River put in spot last Saturday, only to discover that my friend Dave forgot the single piece of gear any angler can't do without - his rod.
You'll be pleased to know, dear reader, that Dave did eventually retrieve his rod & had a good day's fishing.
