If I had to just say fishing, it would've been since I was just five years old or something. If I had to say to actually fish with a sense, then it's all been kind of since joining this club, back in '96 or something. I've read all the mags from front to back up to the point of seeing repetitive information like after two or three years.
I kind of had to study up on fishing because most of my fishing buddies have like 10 times more fishing time and experience than I do. I also kind of had to get better fishing equipment to help me close in on the fish catching deficit between them and me.
