Have you ever paused before making that first cast at dawn, taken a deep breath as your eyes scan across the water and said to yourself, “this is why I fish!”
If not, I feel sorry for you.
There’s no better way to initiate a day on the water than putting it in proper perspective before you get at the business at hand. Sadly, most of us are too preoccupied with getting to our hot spot, tying on the right lure or bait and pursing our dream of having a “successful” day of catching fish.
Sure, catching fish is important. Those successes, regardless of how frequently they occur, are what motivates anglers to get up early, spend long days on the water and disregard any bad weather they encounter.
But when you get right down to it, catching fish isn’t the only reason we fish.
I also did a radio interview with Duran Martinez at Wild Michigan Outdoors Radio about the book which has 26 five-star reviews at Amazon. Don't know yet when it will air.
