“There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of the mind.” ~ Washington Irving
I guess this must be the case but fishing is something that I just do not get. I understand the solitude, the quiet, the peace etc but just sitting there would not work for me. I need something to do or else I get bored and irritable and I am pretty sure sitting and staring at the water hoping that something might happen at some point would drive me bonkers. Each to their own though, if fishing is your thing, I hope you get to enjoy it often.
