If you've never been trout fishing, get a liscence, go find a small, cold, spring fed stream after it rains, wear a heavy pair of jeans and long sleeves, a pair of old sneakers you don't mind getting soaked in the stream, lots of bug spray, a creel with a frozen bottle of water in it, a three dollar pack of 18 trout worms, extra hooks, and an old rod and reel. The worst that will happen is that you spend a nice summer afternoon walking a pretty stream. The best case is you walk a pretty stream, fool a few wily trout, and have a nice breakfast/lunch/dinner. They are damn good eating - especially after working up an appetite crashing through underbrush to get to a steam and back:).
