Go Fishing or Read About It

Go Fishing

Wading through the weeds, blazing a trail to the place no-one else knows. Rolling my canoe behind me on its home made cart to a quiet launch area for a little drift fishing. Carrying three rods rigged three different ways to discover which flavor they’re biting today, and ready to swap-out rigs in a heartbeat. I’ve got my favorite lures in my tackle-bag, live worms as a guaranty of pan fish and corn-pops as my catfish caller. It’s going to be a beautiful day according to the weather-man. High around eighty later in the day, but right now it’s about 65 at daybreak.

My canoe cuts through a shallow fog as I ease it into the water while trying not to make a sound. And then as I slide the handles of my rods into the tubes I’ve mounted to the thwart, I hear a splash not too far from me. I raise my head to pinpoint where the sound came from. There it is, a swirl in the still morning fog. It looks small from here but since it’s on the other side of the pond, it must have been a pretty good size.

I like to stretch a little before I sit down because once I’m in the canoe I won’t be standing again for another few hours. A long deep breath as I drink in the cool morning air. What’s that? I smell watermelon, there must be Crappie nearby. This is going to be the best day of my life. I CAN FEEL IT!.

I push off the canoe and step inside. Everything I need for the day is in the canoe with me, or even a week if I chose to stay that long. My paddle creates tiny whirlpools in the water as it pushes the canoe forward. And as I close my eyes to focus on the sound of the water passing under the canoe, I can hear birds singing in the morning sun. I must be in Heav “”DING””. Someone walked in the store and woke me from my daydream.

Read About It

Well!! I can’t go fishing while I’m sitting in my store, but I have my daydreams. I also have several fishing magazines that feed my imagination and help me escape these walls for a moment or two. With around 2000 magazine titles in this store, I bet we have something to feed your imagination as well. We have magazines with subjects covering everything from coin collecting to automotive to DIY home improvement projects. We carry magazines on art, photography, music, and cooking. We have magazines to improve your personal health, wealth and fitness. Along with magazines to help you manage your money, not mention others to give you ideas on how to enjoy the return on your investments when you retire. We also carry publications such as DonBestSports Rotation Schedules, and tip sheets like Power Sweep, Power Plays, and Pointwise. We also have an adult section that is off limits to anyone under eighteen, and a separate section dedicated to vintage Playboy and playboy products for all of you collectors out there.

Everyone has some kind of special interest. If yours is like mine and you can’t go fishing you can still read about it, come by and see us at Andrews Newsstand.
