I think I'll drop everything and just go fishin'

This essential part of his fishing equipment is lucky because it hosts several lucky fishing lures and flies, all meticulously arranged aroundrepparttar hat, representing some story associated with his fishing adventures. Some stories may be true, but not all, and in timerepparttar 140522 owner ofrepparttar 140523 hat can't remember which are true and which are not.

Another misnomer about going fishing has to do with catching fish. Let me state right here that catching fish has absolutely nothing to do with going fishing. In fact, no true fisherman would ever go fishing withrepparttar 140524 idea of catching any fish. Forrepparttar 140525 most part, it isrepparttar 140526 furthest thing from his mind.

When a fisherman goes fishing and catches a fish, he has nothing to talk about. And whatever else a fisherman loves doing, it is talking.

If, for example, a fisherman goes fishing all day and catches 20 fish, there is only one subject he will talk about when he gets back. No, it is notrepparttar 140527 20 fish he caught. After all, they are right in front of you; what else is there to say about it?

Ifrepparttar 140528 biggest fish, for instance, is 13 inches he cannot exaggerate and say it is 18 inches. The presence ofrepparttar 140529 fish precludes stretchingrepparttar 140530 truth, not that a fisherman would lie ó he just improves onrepparttar 140531 truth as he sees it.

Often, when a fisherman does catch a fish he throws it back underrepparttar 140532 pretense of it not being big enough.

The singular subject of a fisherman's talk when returning from fishing is simply, "the one that got away." No matter how big his biggest catch ofrepparttar 140533 day is,repparttar 140534 one that got away out-scales them all.

He may never have seen that fish, but it has nothing to do with his recitation ofrepparttar 140535 one that got away. Something about that fish, whether real or imaginary, stirsrepparttar 140536 imagination of a true-blue fisherman. And, whether he saw that fish or not, he can talk for weeks, months and even years about that one.

A real fish in time spoils and eventually stinks; however,repparttar 140537 one that got away always improves with age.

I find myself in good company in this area. No less a person thanrepparttar 140538 apostle Peter didrepparttar 140539 same thing. He was frustrated and didn't know what to do so he didrepparttar 140540 thing that came natural to him.

"Simon Peter saith unto them, I go fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing." (John 21:3 KJV.)

I did not go fishing last week but justrepparttar 140541 thought of it was an amazing elixir to my spirit.
