Why I Fish
« on: Dec 26, 2016, 12:58 PM »
First, I wanted to catch a fish, then I wanted to catch a lot of fish, next I wanted to catch only BIG fish - now I want to teach people to fish and it's the most satisfying of all.

 

Oops - guess my fat fingers chopped part of this off .

This is Jacob, my neighbor's son. He is an 8th grade high honors student, a pretty good point guard, loves to fish, knows how to say Thank you and is my understudy until he discovers girls.

To fish or not to fish? That's a stupid question!

"Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after."

Unlike "many man" Thoreau was referring to you surely figured out why you fish :)

I believe time spent with kids if the best and most precious way to spend time.  I spend as much time with my kids as I can, they're only small once, you can't stop or slow down time, and the rest of the stuff such as work and bills will always be there.
