Good things come to those who bait.

Welcome to Fishing Month!  
Why does fishing have to be a man's sport?  We were looking for inspirational quotes about fishing, and every single one of them was written by a man, or spoken in reference to a man.  It reminded me of when I (Melissa) picked fishing for one of my months.  I was a little concerned that it was too masculine.
But then, isn't that a part of why we even do this blog?  To step out of our comfort zones, whether they are placed there by ourselves or by societal constructs.  So, this month, we are heading out to nature to learn a little about the sport of fishing.
We are going to be out on a canoe, sitting on a dock on Lake Washington and taking a fly fishing class with a bunch of ladies.  That's right, it turns out there a lot of other women out there that think fishing isn't just for men!
Off to get our fishing licenses!  Anyone in for a competition to see who can catch the biggest fish?
