Angling Nirvana
« on: Dec 06, 2005, 06:56 PM »
This term came up in a thread regarding a bait shop owner who passed away some years back. He was one of the "good ol' boys" and although I moved to Germany and the west coast for a large portion of my life I do remember going there as a kid. I was fascinated with his tanks and bait. I usually talked him into letting me have a couple minnows because I couldn't catch any that size...

Anyway- what do you think the perfect afterlife would be for a true angler?
It's just for stupid fun, as we all know that I'll probably be reincarnated as a kitten who gets cruelly tortured by a family of juvenile bullies.  :D

Slipbob has already suggested beer and walleyes. That is a very good start!  :clap:

I would like to add that instead of streets there would be different bodies of water, and everyone has their own boat, waders, and shanty!

Any ideas?

Nice thought Hali-man.

We're already close to Nirvana here in New York.

I'd like a virtual door where I can Ice fish on one side and open-water fish on the other depending what kind of mood I'm in.

And beer and walleyes too.

Heck, lets throw in women on trampolines.

Nirvana?  A cold beer, a trout stream, and a flyrod.

I would like it to have 15" of ice all the time with a warm breeze with temps in the mid 70's, all our shanty's would be Tiki huts (Fully loaded), and maybe some hula dancers cooking a pig, all the while the walleyes will be waiting for our lines.

A cold, clean, clear stream loaded with wild brookies (none smaller than 12").  My choice of tackle (fly, spin, bait) depending on the mood I'm in.  A well aged bottle of Cognac and a humidor full of fine hand rolled cigars.
There's a hole in my ice!

nirvana, hmmmmm. i would never have to rebait my hook because my minnow never dies, line would never break and lose that fish of a life time, the ice would be thick and the women thicker :roflmao:, just kidding, and finally there would have to be an endless supply of beer, liquor, ted and food.
