Men and Fish are alike
I'm lucky in that I travel a lot for work. I also manage several holidays a year. I'm not someone who sits in the sun or goes sightseeing, though. If I go away, it will be for fishing or something like that.
The obsessions of others are opaque to the unobsessed, and thus easy to mock. NASCAR, jazz, baseball, roses, poetry, quilts, fishing. If we're lucky, we all have at least one.
There are always new places to go fishing. For any fisherman, there's always a new place, always a new horizon. ~Jack Nicklaus
Fishing is a hard job. Fishing at night. Rain. Day, night. You have to be wise and smart. And quick.
Fishy, fishy in the brook, Papa catch him on a hook, Mama fry him in a pan, Baby eat him like a man.

[ Men and Fish are alike ].
I was born in a little town called Lund in British Columbia. It's like a fishing village. My parents were hippies. They tried to live off the land, so I grew up in a log cabin, and we didn't get running water until I was 4. The next year, we got electricity. Then we moved to the city, Victoria, British Columbia, so I could go to school.
The water you touch in a river is the last of that which has passed, and the first of that which is coming; thus it is with time. ~Leonardo Da Vinci
Nothing is worse than a beautiful girl fishing for compliments by saying how gross she is. On the flip side, I find genuine humility and modesty attractive.
One guy that I wish was here right now, Ted Williams, helped me so much, our long talks, not about hitting but about fishing, one of Ted's passions, and I wish he was here today to share this with me because I owe so much to Ted Williams.
