    I AM A FISHERMAN FOR LIFE

    I WILL ALWAYS BE A FISHERMAN
    IT'S NOT SOMETHING I DO...IT'S WHO I AM

    FISHING IS NOT AN ESCAPE
    IT'S WHERE I BELONG...WHERE I'M SUPPOSED TO BE

    IT'S NOT A PLACE
    BUT A LIFE LONG JOURNEY!!

    IT IS A PASSAGE MY GRANDFATHER TAUGHT ME
    THAT I WILL CONTINUE TO TEACH OTHERS!!

    WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND ALL THIS
    YOU WILL KNOW ME...
    AND WE WILL FISH TOGETHER!
    I would like to take credit for those fine words, but in truth a good friend from New Jersey shared them with me a long time ago. The author is unknown. The sentiment is still true, I try to practice this every day
