The best advice I can give you as a humble, fumbling, fellow-angler is figure out what you are, what you like, and what you want out of the sport. There are trout people and ...
The last time I took my son fishing he brought along his handheld video game.
New Bern, N.C. - Food is vital. I'm not just referring to the obvious need of nutrient ingestion to remain in good standing health-wise; I am talking about food as a part of an experience.

After your mom has the 7-millimeter aneurysm in her right middle cranial artery fixed, you've watched a You Tube clip of the same procedure on a different brain and your mom starts telling people she'll be home in a week (the doctors smile and say it will probably be a few days longer), your depth of observation increases.
