"Did you have a nice time?"
As long as I've fished, the most common question one local fisherman asks another has been, "Have you done any good?" As I was leaving the Patapsco River downstream from Daniels Friday, I passed another fisherman who was just arriving, and he asked, "Did you have a good time?"
The only other person who often asks that question after I've been fishing is my wife. It could be that I was sullen long ago after an unsuccessful outing and responded angrily to an innocent inquiry as to whether I caught anything, and she decided asking if I had a good time was safer.
At any rate, it's a better question and yes, I done good. Caught a nice rainbow trout on a yellow crystal bugger.
