Should Tim Skip Work To Fish New Orleans?

By Tim Romano

Should I go or should I stay? That's the question...

The past couple of years I've been lucky enough to spend a couple of days near the end of January in New Orleans fishing for giant redfish with Captain Gregg Arnold, the Holeman Brothers, and the crew at World Angling Media. Last year was especially good with multiple days of epic fishing and many reds over twenty pounds landed. Even better, Deeter couldn't make it, which meant I got to steal his spot at the front of Gregg's boat.

This year Deeter is going, and he's bringing a friend. Which means I'd have to wrangle up one of the Holeman brothers as a guide, find a place to stay, and, obviously, buy a plane ticket.

My question is; should I go and skip four days of work (putting myself behind the eight-ball early in 2010)? Or should I do the responsible thing, save some money and stay home?

Enjoy the video and if you ever find the yearning to visit one of the coolest cities in America and catch huge redfish on a fly, do yourself a favor and look up any of the characters in this video. They are sure to show you a good time in the Big Easy.

The worst day fishing is better than the best day working so stay.

My guess is that no matter where Tim goes he has his camera and thus his work follows him everywhere. I say fish today, work tomorrow.

Shouldn't the question be, "Should I go and make up 4 days of work later? Or should I stay at home and miss a great adventure that I can write off as well as write about and photograph?

Interesting post Tim... but maybe the headline should have been "Should I go on another epic gonzo adventure with Deeter in the Big Easy, or should I stay home and shop for new pantyhose?"

I'm kinda with Deeter on this one.....is this really even a question? Additionally, as MLH says, take the camera and technically YOU ARE working AND going on a insane adventure. That's what we refer to as a "win-win" situation.

Go fishing, Tim. If you should happen to financially sink because of it, we'll organize a bail-out for you.
