Boyfriend Casually Proposes To His Girlfriend While They’re Out Fishing

Jess grew up in Oklahoma before moving to New York to become a writer. She has a cat named Agnes.

If you ask me, there’s nothing more serene than heading out to a lake or river for a nice boat ride. I am not one for fishing; I just never seem to have any luck, but I still love tooling around, and watching my friends and family catch fish for dinner. The sound of water splashing against our boat and the smell of the crisp air just can’t be compared. Sure, there’s also the smell of fish, but even that has its charm!

When Cody Wilson and his girlfriend Holly Nichols decided to take a spin around the waters at the Douthat Lake near their hometown in Lynchburg, VA, he brought along more than just bait in his tackle box. Filming her on what looks to be a GoPro mounted on his head, Nichols gets a snag in her line and needs some help sorting out before she can cast off. As she hands the pole back to Wilson, he casually hands her something else and tells her to, “hold this instead.” The item: a shiny engagement ring!

Nichols is understandably taken aback by the diamond ring, especially since her boyfriend is being so hilariously stoic about it. She’s clearly in shock and simply asks, “what?” and he responds asking if she loves him. Of course, he hasn’t actually popped the real question yet, which Nichols eventually gets out of him after drying her tears. Way better than any catch of the day!
