That it would be fun to see if we could make a list like Jeff Foxworthy's "you know your a redneck when.." Except, it is you know your a fisherperson when...

I will start: you know your a fisherperson when your wife yells at you to get back on the road when you swerve off it trying to get a glimpse of the river as you drive by.

Let see what you can add, maybe I will collec them all and send them out. I'll see how it goes.

if you refer you your children as native or hatchery

when you name your dog after a river or rod manufacture (mine is sage)

when you have more rods and reels than clothes, food, or kitchen equipment

when you spend all your free time on ifish

You have a power worm dangling from your rear view mirror because you think it makes a good air freshener.

Your wedding party had to tie tin cans to the back of your bass boat.

You call your boat "sweetheart" and your wife "skeeter".

Your local tackle shop has your credit card number on file.

You keep a ugly stick by your favorite chair to change the TV channels with.

You name your black lab "Mercury" and your cat "Evinrude".

Bass Pro Shop has a private line just for you.

You have your name painted on a parking space at the launch ramp.

You have a photo of your 40 lb. chinook on your desk at work instead of your family.

You think MEGABYTES means a great day fishing.

You send your kid off to the first day of school with his shoes tied in a palomar knot.

You think there are four seasons--Pre-spawn, Spawn, Post Spawn and Hunting.

Your $30,000 boat's trailer needs new tires so you just "borrow" the ones off your house.

You trade your wife's van for a smaller vehicle so your boat will fit in the garage.

Your kids know it's Saturday---Because the boats gone,

When dressing up means you put on your newest fishing hat.
When your wife stores her jewelry in a 3 tray tackle box.
When your new living room furniture, is your old boat seats.
When your wall hangings are fishing poles.
When your work boots are falling apart and your hip boots are brand new.
When your kids can tie hooks before they can tie their shoes.
When you have an old reel for a paper weight.
When getting wood for the winter, means stocking up on wood chips for your smoker.
When you read your kids a bed time story out of one of your fishing magazines.
When your wifes recipe box is full of brine mixes.

when the neighbors start complaining that the fish smell from your backyard is getting in their house.
when you come home from fishing and the family calls 911 for an intruder.
you call in work so much to go fishing and then when you do show up for work everyone thinks your a new hire.
you keep waking up every 1/2 hour the nite before a fishing trip
when you sleep your dreams are all of catching the big one.
and then when you come home from a fishing trip your dog can`t even remember who you are and tries to bite you

When you write a list of your requirements for a mate, and it starts with....

Must have nice boat
Must have nice rods and reels
Must have no hobbies other than fishing...
Must shop only at Fishing stores for Christmas...
or.... if none of the above:

Must not care if I'm ever home. :smile:

...when your fingernails are always a nice shade of pink.

...when anyone other than you hops in your car and starts to gag, and you can't smell a thing.

...when the garbage man puts a respirator on to take the lid off your trash can.

...when you knock your wife out of bed setting the hook on a "sleepy-time" chromer.

...when you come back to work after being sick for a few days, and everyone says "How's the fishing?"

Funny! These are great. I was laughing out loud at all of *** Clerk's, and several others. "Palomar knots on your kid's shoes" - too funny. :cheers: Thanks for the laughs! I think all the good ones have been taken, but I'll try some lame ones.

*When you get bored you cure the chicken eggs from the fridge.

*When you show up late at a wedding with hip waders under your pants.

*When you take the family out for a Sunday drive you invariably wind up checking out the fishing ramps for reports.

*When you buy your wife a GLoomis IMX to try to finally get her interested in fishing. "Honey, since you aren't fishing again, can I borrow your IMX"?

*When your alarm goes off and you haven't come fully to yet :sleep: , you look at the clock to see if you're going fishing or to work. "Oh ****, it's work."

When all of your furniture is the same color as your egg cure.
When you can answer questions like this without any thought.
When you cure eggs based on how they taste with roast beef sandwiches and Doritos.
Mark and the dog.

So far *** has the best one of all:

"Your $30,000 boat's trailer needs new tires so you just "borrow" the ones off your house."
