Gone Fishing


Fishing? "Many men go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after"(H.D. Thoreau). A.K. Best puts it like this: "The fishing was good; it was the catching that was bad", and J. Gierach wrote the following: "Fly fishing is solitary, contemplative, misanthropic, scientific in some hands, poetic in others and laced with conflicting aesthetic considerations. It is not even clear if catching fish is even the point". What I do know is that it does feel good, soothes the soul and I need it.
