“Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.”
—Henry David Thoreau
“Fishing provides that connection with the whole living world. It gives you the opportunity of being totally immersed, turning back into yourself in a good way. A form of meditation, some form of communion with levels of yourself that are deeper than the ordinary self.”
