    Ithought you guys might want to read some fishermans prayers...........................

    Fishing Prayer
    Now I lay me down to sleep,
    A box of tackle at my feet...
    My rod and reel perched by the door,
    My hip waders on the floor,

    My trophy hung above my head...
    My minnow bucket beside the bed,
    My raincoat on the bedpost,
    With visions of catching the most.

    If I should die before I wake,
    I pray, dear Lord, it's some mistake...
    For I just know that the next day,
    I'll catch the one that got away.

    Fishing Prayer
    Lord, as we go to fish today,
    Around the lake, or in the bay.
    We ask that you will be our guide,
    Be in our boat and by our side.

    Give us direction, lead us right,
    Where winds are calm and walleyes bite.
    To weed beds where big northern feed.
    You know their ways, you made each breed.

    While we enjoy our lunch on shore.
    We'll watch majestic eagles soar!
    The rocks and trees, the waterfall,
    You are the maker of them all.

    When we return when day is done,
    Delighted with our fishing fun.
    We'll pause a moment, just to say,
    Thanks to our guide, who showed the way.

    An Angler's Prayer

    I pray that I may fish until my dying day,
    and, when it comes to my last cast;
    I then most humbly pray,
    when in the Lord's great landing net
    and peacefully asleep;
    that in His mercy I be judged
    big enough to keep.

    “The Fisherman’s Prayer”
    “Oh Lord…There he is…It feels like a big one…Please don’t let me lose him…I’ve never caught one this big before. I’ll try not to horse him, and if I land him, I promise to release him…and make a graphite replica if my wife says it’s ok. Thank you for the Rapalas…Amen.”
