There are a lot of blogs and forums that focus on technique and the science of fishing. I enjoy some of the technical information, but sometimes focusing on the technical takes a little bit of the fun away. Sometimes I want to choose a lure only because it's a fun color or looks cool in the water, not because it's the right color for the color of the water, the amount of sunshine, the time of year and the temperature of the water. I want to help girls (of all ages and skill) make sure they have fun and try to outfish their husbands, boyfriends, brothers or any other guy.
I like to target shoot, but I don't like to hunt. I'm not anti-hunting, I love my hunter very much. I don't like getting cold, I don't like getting up extremely early and I'm convinced a mountain lion is going to eat me (even if it's in an area mountain lions don't live). I also get lost really easy and can't walk quietly no matter how hard I try. I love having the meat in my freezer or on my plate and if there are any women hunters that would like to guest blog about hunting, please let me know.
Recently my husband and I purchased some ATV's and I am now hooked. We used to rock crawl in my husband's Wagoner that he has modified. I was really good at taking pictures while he drove. We haven't taken the Wagoner (aka "The Big Jeep") out in years and I've missed the trails and seeing parts of the state not many people will ever get to see. This will be my first summer driving on the trails I used to be a passenger on and I'm a little nervous. I have a great coach and I'm getting more comfortable. I just need to figure out how I can drive and take photos at the same time.
