My spouse and I went fishing on our third date. I was in my third year at the University of Minnesota and he was a first year medical citizen at the University Medical facility. He picked me up on a Saturday in his 1960 Corvair at my all-girls' residence and we drove to the St. Croix River where we rented a boat and motor.

Hundreds of family fishing expedition followed. Every spring we would pile into the family station wagon before dawn on the opening day of the fishing season. Gasoline fumes from the ten-horsepower motor stowed in the back of the wagon consumed the air. To me, it smelt like perfume. We would be on the water all day, in a boat filled to capacity - my dad, brother, grandmother, two great-uncles and myself - normally catching our limit and, typically, more than our limit. At mid-day, we would open the large picnic hamper my mother had loadeded with fried chicken, potato salad, and home-made desserts. When I was nine, my father and mothers purchased a cottage on a small Minnesota lake and we had our own boat, ready to take on a fishing expedition at a moment's notice. We understood all the spots on the lake to troll for walleyes. Fishing was more than a sport; it was part of our family's culture.

I had always been obsessively "kind-hearted." I was an expert at catching spiders between two paper cups and putting them outside. I hated to trap mice and, once when we had an influx, had purchased a humane trap that was expected to catch them live so you might let them go outside. Barry knew when he heard a screech from the restroom that I needed his help to catch some critter to put out. He lovingly indulged me.

The two ends of a fishing rod are called 'Tag End' or 'Standing End'. The tag end is also called the 'live end', 'running end' or 'working end'. This is since this is the end of the fishing rod that is utilized to celebrate a marriage. The opposite end of the 'tag end' is the 'standing end' or 'standing line'; the part of the fishing rod that is not associated with celebrating a marriage, it is the unfinished end and results in the reel.

In some cases, beginners forget to trim the core end after tying a knot. Not trimming it altogether to avoid some mistakes can be useful at times but problems occur when a tag end becomes too long. An untrimmed core end can end up making the knot much heavier or trigger unwanted nuisance especially in shallower waters where the fish can be informed by the presence of the line.
