Good evening folks. Or morning, or afternoon, or mid-day… Good (fill in your own damn time of day) folks. Well it’s nearing the end of the fishing season for most of us (except for you crazy ass ice-fishermen), and I thought I should write an ode to the season and what a great year of fishing it has been for so many. How many fish have been caught, and how many beers have been drank, how many stories have been told and how many friendships have been forged…. but I couldn’t think of anything to rhyme it to so instead…. I’ve written an arbitrary jingle to the Gilligan’s Island theme song.
Sorry for pulling at your heart strings with the tease of an ode to fishing stories, and friendships, and all that mumbo jumbo. But we’ll have to save the tear jerkers for another time.
Now although the fishing season is being replaced with raking leaves and making snow angels (you fairies), don’t be afraid to log into FishAddix.com during the offseason on a regular basis to see what’s new and exciting. Be sure to hone your skills during the offseason and share your tips and tricks with the community. Well, I’m sure I’ll be seeing you before the official close of the season so have a good few weeks of fishing and I look forward to hearing from you guys and reading your reports through the “wire.” Enough tom-foolery for now.. enjoy the Gilligan’s Island Ode and I’ll see you next time. (I do suggest listening to the actual theme song a couple times before reading this, It’ll do wonders for your musical timing and rhythm.)
Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip
That started in a college dorm,
Born was a brainchild so hip.
The mate was a mighty business man,
The skipper with tackle and lure.
FishAddix opened its doors that day
For a three hour tour, a three hour tour.
The traffic started picking up,
The domain name was almost lost,
If not for the courage of the website crew
The fishing reports would be lost, the fishing reports would be lost.
The dot-com set ground on the shores of this uncharted world wide web
With Joseph K.
And James too,
The design team, and their pals,
The graphics crew
Chipty and Mary Ann,
Here on FishAddix dot com.
