Thought for the Weekend

Have you ever been in one of those awkward social situations where you are among a group of people and you are supposed to mingle and talk, but you just really have nothing to talk about?

Here is my excuse. . . .

I saved this quote, I believe Matt Straw made it in some In-Fisherman article or on-line story.  I do not remember where.  But, I thought it was really good advice when you walk into a room and wonder who to talk to:

So when you happen to go into a bar and some guy is spouting stories about the numbers he racked up, look back in the corner for the man with a scruffy beard, his mouth shut, looking at bugs on the floor. . . . That is the guy you want to be talking to.

Or better yet, ditch the party and GO FISH!
