Michael Lacey's Autobiography (submitted 5/10/06)
The first time I went fishing I was about 4 years old. My dad took me to a local pond that was known as Stringers at the time but is now closed to public fishing. When we got there I put a worm on my hook and cast my line out into the pond. Seconds later a sunfish tugged on my line and I set the hook. The excitement of holding a wiggling fish in my hand that I had caught completely amazed me and made me extremely excited. It was then that I realized that this was to be my first fish on a long list of catches. Since then I took up fly fishing, and although the majority of my quarry these days consists of trout and other cold water species from creeks around Pennsylvania, I will never forget my first fishing experience and the world it opened up to me. I have also made the decision that when I have children I will teach them to fish so they can experience the same fun and excitement that I do every time I hit the water.
