Default Re: why fish

While fishing the LMF yesterday morning as it was bright, cool, and clear, with a limestone cliff in front of me grander than any pipe organ, and the sun shining on a congregation of organisms dressed in its finest, I thought of another reason: God makes much prettier churches than men do.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

Default Re: why fish

I feel it's the one opportunity in life when you can really breathe. Unfortunately we get so caught up in everthing else around us on a day to day basis, like work stress, deadlines, financial responsibilities, family obligations and any thing else that comes are way. When I finally get on the water everything slows down a little bit, it clears your mind and you can relly can breathe, you notice every little sound/smell and everything seems at peace. Then when you have to tackle alll those other obligations it makes it that much easier. All you have to do is close you're eyes and remember that last time on the water and you can almost hear the sounds and smell the fresh air and it just makes everthing ok and that much easier. I feel for those who truely don't have a outlit like fishing.
