A Zipcar fishing adventure in five parts
Part five: the take!


Recently Zipcar reached out and offered me a credit so that I could try out their service and write about it here on the blog. As somebody who owns a car and hasn’t ever considered joining a carshare, I admit I was initially lukewarm to the idea. But then it hit me: fishing! Sure if you don’t own a vehicle being a Zipcar member offers a simple and quick way to essentially rent a car short-term (and to tread lightly while you’re at it) but if you do own a vehicle that’s a little on the… well… gutless side and you have some heavy lifting/moving to do or a destination that’s at the end of a steep dirt road then they have small trucks and SUVs in their fleet. So I took them up on the offer.

And of course I don’t go fishing by myself, so I brought along my friends Suede Peterson and musician Rob Butterfield. This week I’m sharing five parts of the Zipcar fishing adventure that we went on.

In this fifth and final part that I’ve been promising you all week: the take! We took home seven rainbow trout!!! Seriously incredible considering it was sweltering hot and we rolled up thinking we weren’t going to catch anything but a sunburn. I honestly don’t remember the last time I caught so many fish…

It’s like something out of a brochure, really…

Thanks for the ride, Zipcar!
