I don’t know precisely why I like to fish….. but I am the most content and happiest when I do. Perhaps it is the time immersed in Nature…. being alone in silence, watching the waters and their reflections, listening to the song of the wind, talking to the trees. I am unsure of my skill set much of the time, and ask the earth to provide me with a fish…. The Blessing of Fish for my pleasure and table. Sometimes I come up with nothing, other times I catch what I need. I never catch the daily allowed quota, I only catch what I plan to consume for my supper.
I must say though, that when I am successful and feel that tug on my line, I am filled with gratitude….and excitement. I am thankful that I live in a place where such an activity is readily available…. My first catch of the season, 2 brook trout.
