Why Do I Fish?
To me there is nothing like being on the water early in the morning with the mist just escaping from the surface and hearing the birds in the distance. A fisherman just can’t get any closer to nature than that. I am so thankful that my Dad got me into fishing years ago. It has helped me get through some tough times in my life by being the therapy I needed. I have found that when I am on the water I forget about the everyday grinds of life in general. It becomes one of the most relaxing times of the day or week for me. It is something that I look forward to every week. I don’t have to be with a fishing partner to get this solitude. It can be just a quite day on the stream or the lake by myself. It is my time and I truly treasure it.
