Gone Fishing: A basket full of what?!
A man was stopped by a game warden with his basket full of fish. 
Warden: Do you have a permit for all these fish? 
Man: No sir. These are all my pet fish. 
Warden: Your pet fish? How's that? 
Man: Well, every night I take all my pet fish for a walk to the lake, I let them swim for about half hour and then I whistle and they all come back and jump in my basket and we go home. We do this every night. 
Warden: Well that's just a crock of lies! 
Man: Here I'll show you... (Releases the fish … (17 comments)

Fishing on Whidbey Island!
You're not going to believe the size of the fish that were caught here on the ocean. They say everything is bigger in Texas but not always so! Another nature inspired creation that brings about a smile upon encountering. I believe they are a species of Woodrift Fish.
Pure FUN, especially for fishing enthusiasts! William Feela, this one's for you.

Good things come to those who bait!
Fishing has always been a family favorite for us here in southern Utah. Most weekend days, we grab our gear and head to the nearest reservoir or lake to throw in a baited line with hopes of catching THE BIG ONE! Fishing season is just a pole cast away now that temperatures are warmer, the days longer! 
Washington County, Utah has some amazing fishing areas that are great for day fishing or weekend camping trips. Our 2-year old Gbaby Ruger will soon learn the basics of baiting, casting and in reeling a catch. The concepts of successful fishing can also be applied to real estate prospecting. Engaging … (10 comments)

Getting hooked on prospecting!
Beginning a career in any service related industry requires tenacity and staying power. Gaining a solid client base takes staying the course while implementing tried and true methods.
For me, prospecting for new clients is a lot like fishing...To be successful, YOU MUST:
Be patient Be prepared Be consistent Be persistent Follow-through Know your limits Have realistic expectations Make sure your message is clear Be prepared to lose a few... Catch & release a few as well Realize when you have some "keepers!"  
I highly recommend the proven methods of re-bait, re-cast, rinse and repeat often. Eventually, you will net the rewards of your consistent … (5 comments)

Netting positive results!
Prospecting for new clients and fishing for trout requires patience and diligence, not to mention a consistent effort. Maintaining focus, being available and following up and through allows your efforts to be rewarded, netting positive results.
Fishing success is the exact moment to pull your pole upward at precisely the same time a fish makes the commitment. Prospecting success means engaging potential clients and showing them the benefits of hiring you as their real estate agent rather than someone else.
Guess where my prospecting efforts will be spent this weekend? Happy sales all!

Southern Utah Summertime FUN!
Though the temperatures may climb in the summer months, there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy! The Veyo Pool is 17 miles to the north from St. George at a steady climb and is a hidden gem surrounding by volcanic rock bluffs.

Nature's resort condominium community.
Electric blue Dragonflies vying for position among the reeds as a means to rest before traveling great distances across the wide expanse of water. In a way, it reminds me of a resort condominium community as they are, at times, two, three, four or more stories high with short term leases for all! Happy Tuesday!

I hope your day is filled with RAINBOWS!
We are preparing for our first fishing trip of the season and have been hearing the tall tales of ginormous fish jumping into boats and fish biting the hooks before the bait even gets wet.
Did I ever tell you the story of the time we went fishing and caught enough rainbow trout to open a fish market...?  Happy Saturday all!

Fishing is akin to prospecting, both can net positive results!
Being successful takes time, whether fishing or prospecting for new clients. This advice can be invaluable when implemented and may result in a full belly and filling the business pipeline.
Prospecting: Maintaining focus. Follow up and follow through consistently, be available and informative. Fishing: Reacting too soon to the tug on the line and the fish is gone.  
Fishing: Pulling too hard and you may lose the bait, the rigging and the fish! Prospecting: You may lose a few but if patient, you will net positive results.   
Fishing: Success is the moment to pull your pole upward at precisely … (8 comments)

gone fishing: It's not the real thing. It's just a fantasy. - 07/23/14 01:08 AM
It's not the real thing. It's just a fantasy.
On the way to and from our favorite fishing spot, I noticed a massive castle set way back from the road. The stark white tourets were just visible above the tree line. My mind travelled back to times as a young girl, dreaming about magical castles, gallant princes riding white stallions, beautiful princesses in sequined gowns and tiara's.
I often wondered who lived there and why would someone build a castle in such grand style at this location? So, needless to say, my curiosity got the best of me! 
As we drove down the wash-board, pot-holed road, I realized the king and queen of the castle … (9 comments)

Catching rainbows!
When in doubt, pull the pole out.
Having a hard time deciding on how to spend a day off? During the summer months, you will have no doubts where you will find us on any given week-end or Saturday and Sunday catching rainbows, cutthroat and tiger trout. We'll see you at Panguitch Lake, where the fish are running scared and getting schooled!

I'm having daydreams about night things…Let's GO FISHING!

A fisherman caught a 13 pound rainbow trout at Panguitch Lake two days ago. Perhaps we will have the same luck!
Update: My husband and I caught our limit! Eight beautiful rainbow trout ready to fillet, smoke and eat. Not a 13 pound fish but a 5 pounder will do just fine.
Hope you all have enjoyed your Sunday!

Let yourself go.
Fishing that is!
During the warmer, sweet days of Summer you may find us at any given time letting ourselves go fishing on the banks in southern Utah. Baiting. Casting. Catching and releasing while making regular withdrawals. 
Looking forward to getting to the lake and catching a few again!

gone fishing: "Oh, you know, he's just fishing." - 09/23/13 11:29 PM

"Oh, you know, he's just fishing."
"Okay, when he gets back from fishing, please have him call me," I said. She then said, "No, no he's just fishing!" Not the explanation I was expecting.
She went on to tell me this was not his first 'test the waters' excursion, that he was 'just fishing' 2 years ago as well.
Purchasing a home two years ago would have bought them a home that fit their search criteria to a 'T', including price point. Now that prices have gone up, nothing comes close to fulfilling their current Wish List.
Oh well.
I wish I was fishing.
