It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.

Give a man a fish, and he can eat for a day. But teach a man how to fish, and he'll be dead of mercury poisoning inside of three years.

Just make sure the lanyard is securely attached Lenna, Water birth is all good...but you aint a porpoise. :wink:
" YOUTH is a GIFT "
"AGE is an ART "
"Doesn't mean you get any smarter..just wrinkled and cracked".

"No angler watches nature in a passive way...He enters into its very existence." (John Bailey...Reflections on a Waters Edge)

"Govern a Family as you would catch a small fish....Very Gently." (Chinese Proverb)

"Only those become weary of angling who bring nothing to it but the idea of catching fish." (Rafael Sabatini...1857-1950)

I pray that one day God sends me a fish so big that, when talking of it...I have no reason to lie.

Geez mate, just read your story, scary stuff. I do a lot of fishing on my own, it made me think of what would happen if I was watching my boat disappearing out of sight while i was bobbing around in the water in some creek somewhere. Reckon I might start wearing the lanyard.
