What Fishing Means to us.
People that don’t fish believe that fishing is boring…or…lazy… But it is the complete opposite. In fact, there are hundreds of little decisions to be made; there are so many variables to be considered, and you’re never quite sure…What made the difference? Did I cast too high; too far to the left; did I reel in too slow, or too fast; is the lure too shiny, or too dull; do I stay here, or do I go over there?
I’ll give it five more minutes here and then, try over by that tree… I had better luck there yesterday.
This is why we love fishing, because anything is possible out there, even in failure. We don’t expect anything. And we know that if we go right out there…around that tree, something will be different, something might be different. Something we do might make a difference. That moment a fish hits your line, you feel accomplished, you did it, you made it happen.
This is why we fish.
