Who hooked you on fishing? We want to hear your stories

We want to hear who triggered your love of fishing -- and how it happened. A grandpa? Dad? Mom? Next-door neighbor? Who was it, and how did it happen? Or maybe it was one fish that did it for you. Tell us about it.

We want to hear who triggered your love of fishing - and how it happened. A grandpa? Dad? Mom? Next-door neighbor? Who was it, and how did it happen? Or maybe it was one fish that did it for you. Tell us about it.
