Had a free day on Sat. as the Boss Lady had to visit her Mom. Thought I would get up early & get the Yak ready to do some fishing. Got the yak loaded up on the truck & the gear. Realized that my rods were at my Son-in-Laws house. Dang !! Ran over there & picked up my rods & headed off to the Lake. Got a few miles down the road & suddenly realized that I had no tackle. Turned around & ran back to my SIL house for my tackle boxes. FINALLY headed out to do some fishing & realized that I had no first aid kit. Thinking that I saw in the laws that you had to have one,even in a yak. So, off to the local boat dealer to pick one up JUST in case.The young Lady there told me I didn’t need on so off I went to the lake. Got to the lake a little pissed shall we say by now.Pulled around to the boat ramp & promptly realized I left my PFD at home. BACK home I go after the PFD cursing to myself for my Lack of memory.GRRRRRRRR> Finally got home & grabbed the dang PFD.Made the mistake of picking up the phone before I left.It was our Daughter & she needed something right away. Sooooooo, ran over there & helped her out for about an hour. REALLY upset now I went off to the lake. ( again)On my way there or shall I say I was almost there when a storm blew in. I mean the MOTHER of all storms !!! Lightning,high winds,pouring down the rain like all get out.Thoroughly dejected, I threw in the towel.Went home,put everything away,just sat in the garage & watched the rain, & watched the rain & watched the rain. Wife got home around 6ish. She pulled in & it was sunny & warm & I was like Ok. She asked me if I got to go fishing & all I could do was chuckle. YEP, I told her. It was just one of those days.
My birthday last year…
On my birthday, I take the day off and go fishing. So last year, in a series of goofinesses similar to your own, I screwed up my anchor trolley, broke a blade off my prop, rowed a few hundred yards, made three casts, went off in search of a replacement blade, bought it, then had a blow-out on my trailer tire on the way back home.
I didn’t catch anything on any of the four casts either. Some days, it’s just not meant to happen.

look at it this way
at least you will have everything you need next time you get an opportunity.
