We catch a buzz thinking about fishing and we embrace your fishing addiction, in fact we have a fishing addiction too! 

1. You bring your kayak to work and it stays in your truck, so you’re always prepared.


2. Your fishing gear stays in your vehicle.

3. One more cast means one more cast in every direction, so, 10 or more casts.


4. You squeeze in fishing before work and/or on lunch break.

5. You believe the only rehab for fishing is … more fishing!

6. You’ve brought your boat to work, to fish after work.


7. While grocery shopping at Wal-Mart you walk out with fishing gear instead.

8. You find yourself looking for the sporting good section at stores.

9. When you see a pond you think, “there’s gotta be bass in there.”
