Dave needed to pack for Saturday’s fishing trip. went into his hall closet, where he had than 20 rods and reels. Nowadays he went twice a year at Big Bear, a huge in southern California about 7,000 feet up in mountains.
California tries to boost the fishing industry sponsoring a Free Fishing Day twice a year, in June and once in September. That sufficed Dave. He went mostly because it was a event with a few friends, not so much catch fish. Even by itself, the scenic drive a twisty two-lane road was worth the trip. to mention the big, beautiful houses and trees lined the shore of the lake.
Packing was project in itself. Dave had even created a file named Fishing Trip. It was a checklist 45 things to take to Big Bear. He two rods, because on Free Fishing Day you allowed to fish with two rods instead of usual one rod. He took a hooded sweatshirt, , two pair of socks, a heavy hooded denim , winter gloves, and a scarf. He also took -flops, shorts, a T-shirt, #30 sun block, sunglasses, a hat, and a lightweight raincoat. If you go Big Bear in June, you’d better be prepared hot or cold, rain or shine.
He packed couple of magazines to read just in case fish weren’t biting. He and his friends joked the fish were always biting - in the you just left or the spot you were to.
After about an hour and a half, had gathered all the items on his list a neat pile next to his door. He to bed knowing that tomorrow’s weather and fishing unpredictable, but the good time with his friends a given.
