Joe being the expert fisherman announced that the knot I had tied broke, then he looks at me and smiles. That was pretty much the end of me for the day! I fell out of grace for the rest of the day. .

I hate it when that happens! I am usually the knot tier in our group, and one year salmon fishing I got really bad line cuts on my hands because of the cold, so I naievely just used the needle nose pliers to "tighten" my knots (we use pretty heavy line). Needless to say, the first two heavy hits, the lines broke right at my knot. I was in the doghouse and kicked off of knot duty for the rest of the day.... I feel your pain!

Janet, yours is a great story too! I am not sure if it would have been better or worse if you would have gotten the fish...........

Hate those lessons learned the hard way! Sad
You don't stop playing because you grow old... you grow old because you stop playing!
