    I was cleanin' out the shed today and found two ol'signs I've had forever.

    Fisherman's Prayer :
    God, grant that I may live to fish
    until my dying day--- and when it
    comes to my last cast, I then most
    humbly pray--- when in the Lord's safe
    landing net I'm peacefully asleep, that
    in His mercy I be judged big enough to keep.

    The Anglers Prayer :
    Lord give me the grace
    to catch a fish
    so big that even I
    afterwards
    may never need to lie !

    I ran across that before, a long, long time ago! It has a very special memory to me! Thank you for making it fresh again in my mind! Great post!

    The fishing prayer I heard went like this.

    "Early to bed early to rise, fish like hell and make up lies"
