Anyone else out there superstitious? I consider myself to be a rational person, of course, but I have a couple of superstitions regarding fishing. Theres one belief that I neverwell, rarelybreak: I wont take a drink until the first fish is caught. I mean beer, pop, waternothing. This goes for catfishing, fly fishing, saltwater, bass fishinganything. Ive gotten plenty thirsty, too, because I dont always remember to take a sip before I rig up. If anyone in my fishing party catches a fishnot just meI feel free to reach for the cooler. I mentioned this to a fishing buddy who is quite a religious man and he muttered for a while about pagan idolatry. I dont see it that way, although I cant explain it. Anyone else have any fishing superstitions?
