Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've recently started watching the TV show River Monsters, and am now hooked. (no pun intended)
Because of the fishing on this show, my wife and I have decided that we are going to take up fishing as a hobby. I know that we aren't going to catch any of the kinds of fish that are on River Monsters, but we are looking forward to days on the river banks in the summer where we can just relax, catch the occasional fish and spending time together as a family with our infant daughter.
I've fished in the past, although it's been nothing more than me buying a rod that's on sale, and some expensive lures. Surprisingly (not), I've never caught anything, and I've lost all of those lures.
If there's one thing that River Monsters has taught me, it's that you need to be educated about the kinds of fish you're hoping to catch, as well as know your fishing equipment if you hope to have any success. (And the occasional blessing from a witch doctor doesn't hurt either .)
Do any of you fish? Where are some good fishing websites to learn the basics? Do any of you live in the Calgary, AB area and have some tips on good spots?
