Everyone wants that ideal fisherwoman in their lives - the chick who can outfish your best friend, the girl who looks good with a buff around her ass and tits, the one who can spey cast across a Canuck river while applying lipstick... whatever. Some of you already have that (think our resident flyfishingphotojournalist, hot-blondie Vokey, and any other Page 6 Chick).

Girlfriend has fished a few times on a local tailwater, talks about how she out-fished her ex (uh huh...). I'd like to get her out fishing a bit when it warms up, definitely on a bonefishing destination or a trout trip out west later this year...

Question - we already share a lot in common: both hockey fans (I miss the Rangers back home, she's a Caps season ticket holder), foodies, hiking, etc.

Do you try to incorporate your significant other into your fishing or do you keep your art/sport/passion separate so you have some way to get away from your daily grind?

FIVE RULES FOR MEN TO FOLLOW TO A HAPPY LIFE:

Just remember these few things

1. It's important to have a woman who helps at home,
cooks from time to time, cleans up, and has a job.

2. It's important to have a woman who can make you
laugh.

3. It's important to have a woman who you can trust,
and doesn't lie to you.

4. It's important to have a woman who is good in bed,
and likes to be with you.

5. It's very, very important that these four women
do not know each other.

I'll never forget this situation:

I was walking up the boat ramp going to my truck. I passed a minivan that had just pulled up no more than 5 minutes before. there were two hellyian boys running around like chickens with their heads cut-off, a rather large woman trying to squeeze into her even larger orvis waders while yelling at said boys, and her husband rigging up himself with a look on his face that said "KILL ME NOW". Poor fucker. All he wanted to do was catch a few stockers on his five weight. Instead he has to lug that "shit" to the river with him. That shit you need to leave at home. April Vokey, you need to take with you.

IMHO, there is no one size fits all solution here. Each chick is different. She may seem gung-ho right now in your relationship and up to the task of a true fishing holiday; or, she may have an idea that 10 days out west fishing is really a few casual afternoons and "we'll do other stuff too". Only you know that as time goes by.
My wife has put up with quite a bit of fishing related matters in our time together, and being a guide, she puts up with my griping when I get home about folks who can't cast,etc. My mrs. does not pretend to like to fish alot however, while your g/f sounds like she is into it. When we go on a roadtrip in NZ, she may fish a bit, I always hope to fish a bit more, but schedules and ideas can clash (as in I'm stuck in a city on the nice day when I should be fishing, and she's shopping,etc.).
I guess my only advice is be prepared to compromise going into it, and if she starts to show hesitancy about said fishing trip, give some time on the trip for her to do things that interest her otherwise; but make it clear you didn't go out west to shop and watch hockey in the hotel...

...I'm taking my mrs. to the USVI in July during the offseason; I get to roam some flats, she gets to sit and read a book: win-win. Good luck man... :cool

No, no, and more no! A few years ago I got my wife involved in my mountain biking passion and she took to it. One day she walks by my bike in the garage and says to me " and where did you get the money for that new XTR crankset on your bike ($700.00)" She figured out my locker room fund. Never again....

Sounds like fishing with randy.

I see no problem with this one and actually have a good story about it.

Bout 6 years ago my girlfriend at the time was not very outdoorsy so I convinced her to do a float with me. She was one of the freaky ones who could never get enough, miss those ones. This river gets no boat traffic at all. So we were floating down the river and decide to anchor up. We started getting down to and I had her bent over the side of the outcast....next thing I hear an outboard coming rippin around the corner ( would have been cooler if I had continued with the act) out of panic I almost launch her into the river head over bare ass yelling coast guard as an orange zodiac ripped down river towards us. As the boat comes by I see its the swift water rescue team with the biggest grins you could imagine on their faces apparently that was their training day.

As for the girl if you can share a common interest and still have her understand you also need your fishing time alone or with your boys then your good.

who knows you might eve have your own swift water rescue team story :cool

I do but it involves an inflatable kayak, a sex-starved girl from Puerto Rico, and a big-ass cowboy hat in the middle of the Delaware River. Word to the wise - sounds echo across slow pools with big sound-reflecting walls.

My two cents....My ex wife liked to fish. I enjoyed almost every minute I ever fished with her when I wasn't behind the oars or teaching her how to fish. In other words....fishing with someone else in the boat that could row and instruct. My own selfishness was the reason we fought, I simply expected and wanted her to catch fish too much. The teaching part almost ended our marriage years before the end finally came.

1. Let someone else teach/coach her if possible.
2. If you start to argue while fishing, it's best to just STFU.
3. There's nothing better than watching your better half catch fish.
4. Do not let her get into or use your tying materials.
5 Give her her own fly boxes. Chicks dig their own box. (ha...)
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.
