I hope to use this blog as an avenue to express my thoughts and adventures of all of my fishing expeditions and any other journeys I may undertake.

What Does Western Movies Have to do with Fishing??
I just got through watching for the second time: one of the greatest westerns ever made in my opinion. “Dances with Wolves”The weather wouldn't permit me to get out on the water today, so I opt to my other pastime--Western Movies----I know this has nothing to do with fishing, but just as fishing is one of my pastimes so is Western Movies. If you guys have read my profile you will discover that I am an avid Western Movie fan. I guess I have seen hundreds in my lifetime. Not all were great, but most meet my expectations of being authentic. I guess that is why I am into the western theme. It gives one the chance to look back when life was being tuff, enduring hardships and coping with danger. Not all western movies depict how life really was during that era. An example was the ladies in the saloons. They were not dressed to the tilt and look like they just came off the run way. According to a lot of the books describing the saloon ladies they were anything but that. A lot of pictures showed them to be rugged looking. So the high dollar sporting girl the cowboy got usually turned out to be low dollar. I like movies that are realistic and the western really depicts that theme. My top five westerns of all time are-------
Dances with Wolves
Any of you bloggers into Western Movies if so, what are some of your favorites?
