Stopped is a presentation too
Back when I was pregnant, though, I discovered that some of the guides I thought were my buddies were telling anyone who would listen that I was done guiding. That hurt in more ways than one. The upside was I really needed to find something else to do because being on the water for 10-12 hours was not going to happen anymore, and those thoughts running through my head really pushed me along. I’d already started filming and shooting photos, so I branched out from there to supplement my income. Those efforts also allowed me to be at home more (you know, editing and touching up photos…and changing diapers). All in all I made it work, and now when I guide I’m more into it than ever – I feel like I’ve rediscovered my love for guiding and fishing.
I still get to travel and fish as I have a very supportive husband who fishes as well. We trade off trips – while one stays home with Ethan, the other gets to choose a fishing buddy and do their thing.
