102-Year Old Female Angler Tells Story Of Leaving Her Husband To Win A Rod And Reel!

Published on November 7, 2016 under Fishing FUN, Salt Strong

Got to love hearing about a 102-year old that still goes out and wets a line.

Not only that, she’s been fishing for longer than most of us have been alive!

Meet Margaret Renner, a 102-year old from Montana that has been fishing pretty much her entire life.

When asked why she believes she has lived so long, here was her response:

“That’s why I think I’m living so long, because I’ve eaten a lot of fish.”

And the biggest cardinal sin for Margaret…

It’s losing a fish…

This quote from the Missoulian on Margaret sums it all up:

“Having lived through two world wars, the Great Depression, the nuclear age, manned travel to outer space, the women’s movement and computer age, a person would be correct in expecting Margaret to be the bearer of some sage advice. Her final admonishment to a visitor as she held his hand in both of hers and looked directly into his eyes was: “You need to go out and fish.”

Enjoy the video on Margaret below.
