The last trip with my wife she outfished myself and Lando.

My wife is currently bugging the shit out of me to book another trip for Tigerfish on the Zambezi. She will fish all day for Tigers, she can double haul, toss big streamers to bows in AK, and can run a jetboat better than most people. That being said, we fish together probably 10 days a year MAYBE, as that is all she cares about fishing. She likes to go and spend time on the river and typically spends over 180 days on a river for research, but typically only fishes for 4 hours if we are on the South Fork of the Snake or the Hank or similar river. She likes to fish it but its not her passion by any means. Its fun to fish with her, but we don't make it a everyday thing.

She did drag my ass to Alaska for three years to live in a wall tent on a remote river in the middle of fing nowhere. We ALMOST went to Tierra Del Fuego for three years, before research changed. Ours is a bit of a different relationship than most people have.

Don't teach her how to fish. Teach her how to Row.

Some varied and solid advice on this one.

Everyone is different, like VTNZ says, "No size fits all."

It works for me, however, and one might argue that it'd be a hell of a good test for taking the relationship any further. I mean if you can't fish together...

When Wendy and I were still dating she had fished before and loved camping. I taught her how to fly fish and she even learned to catch fish on dry flies. We got married and she suddenly went backwards. Now she fishes powerbait on a spin rod. But she still fishes and is always game for a weekend camping trip. Further, she always tends to the dogs while I fly fish upstream, so they don't spoil the water. She doesn't cast a fly rod rod but she keeps the dogs out of my runs, so fuckin win win as far as I'm concerned.
We fish every chance we get. Her with pink worms and me with flies. All is well.

My wife has no interest in crashing around rivers and streams hunting trout. She likes to fish out of the boat and she is getting damn good on the sticks which I think she likes as much as fishing. So if we intend to fish together, we plan accordingly.

On salt trips she either comes along in the boat and catches a bone fish or two, or she just watches me fish. But she loves to be in the boat, to watch the birds, and be in the mangroves. Because of that, we go together on trips that we ( ME! ) would not go on otherwise. I don't expect her to catch fish (nor does she) but she knows that she can't come along and watch her watch either. And other than nearly drowning in a wicked storm off the coast of southern Belzie in a panga, she has had a great time. But, for a week in Belize or otherwise, we will only get three or four days fishing. The rest of the time we do what she wants to do.......That is a trade of I can live with ( and have for many years).

If so I'll take her fishing for you.

If my beautiful bride went fishing, I may be inclined to go to the mall that day.

I hate the mall.

4. Do not let her get into or use your tying materials.

6. Never complain about the cost of the rod she wants to put in her hand, you might lose yours.

The woman can fish though.........pretty damn good.
This exactly. Do not ever try to teach her to cast or fish yourself.

^^ this and there will definitely be a time that youre looking to go out alone or with a good buddy for some quiet time on the river adn she gets pissed that she wasn't invited. Who'd-a-thunk she wanted to go out when the guides are frezzing up and the sun isnt planning on showing up either??

But, for the most part it's worth it - she at least has a better understanding of why you talk about,plan, prepare-for and go fishing. It's also the best company you can get on a float-camp trip.
