    Fisherman's Prayer (Don't know who wrote this) 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, As big enough to keep.
    And a Quote by Herbert Hoover

    To go fishing is the chance to wash one's soul with pure air, with the rush of the brook or the serenity of a lake and the shimmer of the sun on blue water. It brings meekness and inspiration from the decency of nature. Charity toward tackle-makers, patience towards fish, a mockery of profits and egos. A quieting of hate, a rejoicing that you do not have to decide a darned thing until next week. And it is a lesson in the equality of everyone - for all people are equal before fish! Herbert Hoover
