Trout on a stringer

Fishing for trout is like having a career in the arts.

Why?

Because while good equipment can help, it’s no guarantee that you’ll catch anything.

And just because you caught something yesterday doesn’t ensure that you’ll do it again today.

Or ever.

Amateurs can often do just as well as pros, and children can often beat them both.

And in the end, if you are going to fish, the reward mustn’t be the fish, or even the promise of fish.

The reward must be found in the process of standing on the shore in all kinds of weather, loving each cast.
