it's thought that men and women will never be able to understand each other. In most of the cases I would strongly disagree - two marriages each almost 10 years and having worked with men for more than twenty years both as boss and and employee I'd say I understand them pretty much good. But there is one damn thing I don't understand at all - the river or lake rod fishing. I understand when it's in the ocean and prey is a big fish you have to fight with in a fair game, but when you simply pluck it like a carrot from a garden bed and yet have to sit hours long to wait till it deigns to swallow your bait, no I just can't get it. there are few reasons - first of all it's still prey. The feeling of having a little fish down in the water when you're pulling it out is really awesome. And then other things - like enjoying nature, meeting friends
