11) You think MEGABYTES means a great day of fishing. 

12) You send your kid off to the first day of school with his shoes tied in a "blood knot".

13) You think there are four seasons--Fly tying & dreaming, Fly tying and waiting, Fly tying and getting your equipment ready and Finally, Fishing, but first you have to tie some extra flies, just to be safe. 

14) You trade your wife's van for a smaller vehicle so your pontoon boat and drift boat will fit in the garage.

22) You don't need an alarm clock on fishing days, but sleep thru two settings of your alarm on workdays.

23) And finally, your wife believes you went fishing even when you come home "fishless”.
