“The act of fishing – for fish, dreams, or whatever magic is available – is enough. It transports us to a special world, and a state of mind, where we are free.”
– Fennel Hudson
The break from reality, the vacation from normalcy is the allure of fishing. Be it on a boat or standing on the shore or wading into the river, it is escapism in nature as opposed to among the pages of a book or in a bottle or on the phone.
Whether flicking a fly or wiggling a worm or casting your net into the sky to catch dreams, fishing is an active engagement that always yields results even if all you catch is a cold.
