Bass fishermen watch Monday night football, drink beer, drive pickup trucks and prefer noisy women with big breasts. Trout fishermen watch MacNeil-Lehrer, drink white wine, drive foreign cars with passenger-side air bags and hardly think about women at all. This last characteristic may have something to do with the fact that trout fishermen spend most of the time immersed up to the thighs in ice-cold water. ~Author Unknown
Living here in Maine we have one of the best trout fisheries in the Northeast. You can bet that I will stand in ice cold water up to my waist to catch these fish. Plus my waders don't let any cold in.
