Re: Have any of you ever quit fishing?
Quit fishing ? Naw !
You didn't quit fishing, either. It was just a 6 month hiatus, that let you refocus. If you felt pressured to go fishing against your will, and only went thru the motions, then a break was in order.
But even if you cut the plant to the ground....
The roots are still in the soil.
Your "new season" is about to begin. Relax, and allow yourself to enjoy it.
When I was in sales, I had a regional manager who said " a salesman is the luckiest man in the working world, because no matter how bad his month was, he gets reborn on the 1st of the next month."
That little homily has helped me through quite a few projects that weren't going well. It even applies to fishing. I might not catch anything today, but when I go out next week, it's a fresh start. Get me back on the water !
Welcome aboard. Thanks for the post. Please keep us up to date on your new adventures.
You can always tell a fly fisherman. You just can't tell him much.
