Fishing Beneath The Glow Of Black Angus

So I had this dream over the weekend about fishing with my tenkara rod just outside of Orlando. For some reason, it happened to be in the middle of the night, so I really couldn't see much other than what the random car headlights and fluorescent illumination of a Chinese food sign allowed.

I don't think the fishing was that great in terms of size or species, but I caught about a dozen in that dream, I so I guess it wasn't a total nightmare.

This is what I remember... as with most dreams, the events were sort of foggy and out of focus...




What I can't figure out is if I was dreaming about being in Orlando, why didn't I dream about fishing on Walt Disney World property instead of outside The Olive Garden? Sure, unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks are tempting, but I hear the Mouse has lunkers in his water. WTF!?!


Postscript:  
Turns out this wasn't a dream, rather an delirious act of urban fishing following a day of far too much heat, fun, and Sith this past Saturday.

  1. I remember that kind of "fire" Mike. One day, even if it isn't until you're 85 - you'll lose it. Seems almost everyone does - if not the urge, the ability. Your post is a reminder to "go for it" every chance we get. You only go around once. ( No, there was no way I was going to end this comment with "YOLO." ...............oh crap. whatever. )

    1. Nice point of view Owl. Interesting, my "fire" has definitely changed temperatures vs. a few years ago. I used to want to fish all day all the time, now I'm just happy with an hour or so here or there. Even a half day seems like a lot to me.

  2. Awesome! Seriously,, deliciously awesome. Next time you and the fam go to a theme park and hunt for those lunkers, you should probably pack a spinning rod.

    1. Yeah, I kind of thought the same. Lucky I didn't take a daytime picture, who knows what I might have dredged up in that sewer tossing a Yamamoto senko or something like that.

  3. Wow, I didn't even know Black Angus was still in business. I used to eat there when I was a kid about 10 years ago. Maybe it was 20 years ago. Could have been 30 years. I forget.
