Fishing is my best therapy
Fishing is very meditative; you need to be able to give up control and cast out the line and then hope for the best, so in that way, it's quite like acting.
There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of the mind. ~Washington Irving
Game fish are too valuable to be caught only once. ~Lee Wulff
I'd go fishing and always pretend I would catch the biggest fish. I'd stay out there for hours after everybody else left until I caught something. When I shot baskets, I was always the coach and star player and always made the winning shot.
In the suburban Midwestern Reform Jewish world I was raised in, in the nineteen-seventies and eighties, grown men built plastic scale models of Israeli tanks and F-15 jets and displayed them throughout the house, dangling the warplanes from bedroom ceilings with fishing line.

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
To pull the rascal in!~John Wolcot
I grew up in West Palm Beach, Florida. My dad took me hunting, trapping and fishing when I was a kid.
The two biggest things that translate from the pitching mound to hunting and fishing are patience and perseverance. When you're on the mound, you have to take the game one pitch at a time, regardless of the score, and that approach helps when I'm in the woods or on the water as well.
