9781404185081: Fisherman's Guide to Life: Wisdom & Wit Based On the Realities of Fishing

Our most profound lessons, first learned in childhood, must be relearned again and again throughout life. We know the fundamental principles all too well: fairness, honesty, optimism and love, to name a few. But in the wake of the daily grind, we forget. The universal human dilemma is this: Perspective is the perishable commodity.

Fishing restores perspective. When we escape to the solitude of quiet waters, the day's fleeting troubles seem to evaporate into the mist; in the presence of Nature, spiritual order is restored.

The observant angler has many lessons to learn, and this book addresses a few of them. Utilizing the words of renowned fishermen, writers and philosophers, each principle is examined in light of its application to fishing and, more importantly, its application to life.
