Truth is, vindicating Robin should be pretty easy, as she is neither smug nor regulatory. But since this is a hunting and fishing column, I need to figure out how she is best redeemed as a sportsman's partner. The first thing that comes to mind is that she lets me go hunting and fishing pretty much whenever I want to. I've heard that not all spouses are so amenable in that regard. Robin, however, seems to be perfectly fine with the fact that during large parts of May, October, and November, I'm off traipsing the woods or walking a stream. She not only accepts this but supports it, which is pretty darn considerate of her.
