Sadly, I have to say this year fishing and having fun have often taken the backseat to work. And if you know me at all, that just isn’t me.

But I have found that it does make the days you get to play a little more memorable, although some things you can’t change no matter how busy life gets.

This weekend is one of those things, the Confidence Learning Center Fishing Classic. I’ve kind of lost track on how many years I’ve gotten to be a part of it but I know it’s over 10. I’ve had the pleasure of fishing with so many different people at the Classic it’s getting hard to remember them all. But usually you can think about something cool that happened during the tournament.

But even if the fishing is good or bad, or the weather is hot or cold, you can’t really have a bad day when the whole reason everyone is out there is to support the campers at Camp Confidence.

So if summer has you all tied up, just make those days outdoors great ones.
