Let’s see if you recognize any of these fishing stereotypes. I won’t give most of them away, but as you can guess, the first stereotype is pretending that the fish you caught is much bigger than it really was. I don’t really get this one, but I guess it’s a common fishing occurrence. I figure if you tell the truth about your fishing results, people are more likely to believe you when you truly do hook that monster catch. Plus, if you’re honest about your fishing skills, you’ll be much more likely to have other fishermen open up to you with good tips or maybe even share some inside information about some productive fishing holes. To use camera tricks and angles to make the fish look bigger is rather ignoble.
True story: when I was a kid, I was fishing in a creek with my dad and sisters using cane poles. One of my sisters carelessly cocked back to cast, not realizing my other sister was behind her. When she pulled the pole forward, her hook pierced my other sister’s belly button. What should have been a nice day fishing in the sun turned into a trip to the emergency room for a tetanus shot. Always look behind you before you cast. Those hooks are sharp. Check out this comedic collection of fishing stereotypes. By the way, what’s with all the smart phone usage during these guys’ fishing outings? And where are they fishing, the drainage pond at a country club? Do you consider that true fishing?
