The Second Last Cast

Told you. Don't forget there should be at least three 'last casts' strictly speaking... LC3'Hint': clicking on this footnote takes you somewhere else...

Heed the wise words of the Bugangler (8½) "You have to really enjoy fishing, as there's quite a lot of it inbetween the fish." Quite so.

"Doubt not but angling will prove to be so pleasant that it will prove to be, like virtue, a reward to itself." ~~ Izaac Walton ~~ 

'Another' short questionnaire:

The Last Cast Do you have line without mould? Q1Good Lord, are you sure you're a real angler? The rod works and you're allowed out? Get ye hence.

The Last Cast Are you 'of bait'? Q2Are you serious? Why are you reading and not fishing?

The Last Cast Is your flask straining already with tea or coffee? Q3Ah now, at least you're getting ready. About time too.

The Last Cast Have you missed seeing the Northern Lights again? Q4To be fair, I'd miss fishing to see the Northern lights, more than once. On the 'must see' list.

The Last Cast Do you have a rod which works? Q5I can assure you there is only one way to ascertian this for certain...

The Last Cast Do you have "permission to fish"? Q6This is vitally important, I wouldn't want to get you into any trouble...

What is the matter with you? If the answer to all of the above is "yes", then go fishing now...you can read about fishing when it's dark, damp and even small perch spurn maggots, except the lone perch of yoreOdd, even Gluey's had them. Go on, out with you!

...and be lucky...

"To go fishing is the chance to wash ones soul in pure air, with the rush of the brook or with the shimmer of sun on blue water. It brings meekness and inspiration from the decency of nature, charity to tackle makers, patience to fish. A mockery of profits and ego, a quieting of hate, a rejoicing that you do not have to decide a darned thing until next week. And it is discipline in the equality of men, for all men are equal before fish" ~~ Herbert Hoover ~~
