of fishers of bait
Historically, there has been many concerns of how instead of why.
I was invited to fish the snoopy rod invitational on the olyimpic pennisula this friday. I have never fished for steelhead with gear before. How could a humble samurai say no. too much fun and I hope the bait washes off and I really hope it don’t make it hurt when I pee. My hatchery steelhead karma will most definatly take a hit on this one.
The Code mentions “the dirty” many times. I found this writing to be most interesting. I have had this debate many times among the clan.
Scroll 2 verse 5
“One must ask themselves in true understanding and honesty of ones self, why one fishes as opposed to how one fishes.”
I have pondered this question many times. I have have came to the conclution of:
I fish for “the one” because it makes me feel the challenge I need to hold proper.
That is “the why”.
I fish flies because they are part of the equation of this challenge.
That is a combination of “how and why” but essential to “the why”.
Anyway, Friday Ima don a snoopy rod and fish for zombies cause it sounds like fun.
