Hook, line and sinker
A friend and I were out fishing this evening, and talking about what makes a good fisherman.
It's definitely not those who just read books and fishing magazines. And it's more than someone who occasionally seems to luck into fish.
It seem to be a combination of right time, right place, right place, right tide, ability to think like a fish ... and intuition.
Good fishermen seem to possess a 'X' factor that you can't invent or buy. Can it be learned? I don't know. Maybe.
Evidently, based on this evening's catch (for me, a big fat nothing), it's not a gift I possess.
