    I thought you all might enjoy this. It is from a Prayer Card that my Uncle had at his Funeral. He, of course, was an avid fisherman. The only man I knew who buried his chicken livers before using them as Catfish Bait.
    You gotta love those Appalachians.

    Russ, thanks for a printed copy I can save. My Daughter-in-law gave me a plaque with that prayer on it. I'm an inveterate modifier, so I'll probably modify it to a "Catfisherman's Prayer"

    Of all the prayers I've seen posted on the BOC, I have to say that is probably the most appropriate for this forum. Great post!

    That one hangs on the wall of my fishing themed room, which I am sitting in right now. Thanks for sharing it with the membership, Russ, it's definitely a keeper! :smile2:

    When I grow tired of stink bait and tired of fishing gear,
    When I get sick of day old bread and tired of flat warm beer,
    And when I miss the wind and rain and sitting in the cold,
    I will then and only then hang up my fishing poles.
