Monica Jaillet is no girlie girl -- she'd rather spend hours fishing in a frigid river than in a fancy spa.
She'll stand out here for hours, in the cold and rain, just to get a nibble.
"I won't come out in a hurricane but a little bit of rain isn't going to scare me away," she says.
Monica admits she's an anomaly among her female friends, but there are likely a few guys out there who think she's quite the catch.
"I do tend to see a few looks from the men out there on the river because I am one of the only women out there," she admits. "I think it's refreshing for them to see a woman out there."
Monica says the river calls to her. The sound of the water, the fresh air and the birds provide her with a sense of peace.
And it's been even more peaceful this year because of the weather.
"It's been warmer than normal," Monica says. "On a really hot day the fish tend not to bite as much...but in the evening when it cools down a bit, and the insect activity picks up, that's when the fishing get really good."
And in her book, there's no better girl time -- no matter how big - or small - the catch.
