The magic of fishing

Many people fish for many different reasons.  Guys fish to fit in, to drink with their buddies, for food, for trophies, etc.  There are a few of us however that fish for different reasons; reasons not so useless or benign, but necessary in maintaining sanity.

The trophies are great and the flesh is good, but thats not why I fish.  I enjoy the company of buddies and I enjoy "tying-one-on" from time to time, but thats not why I fish. 

I fish because it is the only time in life where I feel peace and freedom.  The beautiful scenery, sounds, smells and animal encounters.  Catching fish...well thats a bonus that ties everything together, but thats not why I fish.

This is fishing to me and what I yearn for everyday.
