Crappie Basics #178: Invest in Fishing Memories

Everyone looks at money verses reward. Spending $1500 for a couch and chair that will last several years seems reasonable and can be justified. You have tangible items in return for your money.

Spend $1500 on a fishing trip with your family or buddies and that money is gone after a few days to a week. How do you justify the expense?

 

Fast Forward Seven Years…

Your couch and chair has been replaced. They are gone forever.

But the fishing trip remains in your memory. You and the others enjoyed the trip, enjoyed the memories for seven years and the memories will continue until the grave…the laughs, the fish, the beautiful sunrises and friendships. Use money wisely but don’t pass up an occasional opportunity to invest in fishing memories. -TH
