How I Learned the Difference between Fishing and Catching

By Rich Bond

As I said in a previous post, my dad used to take my brothers and me fishing when we were kids. And I have been hooked (if you pardon the pun) ever since. When my sons were young, I took them and their friends. In this photo, you can see the fun when my boys and a neighbor girl all caught a fish at the same time.

On most vacations, I make it a point to find a way to fish. And even though I enjoy myself, I usually wind up getting skunked (i.e., I don’t catch anything). Over the years, I’ve learned that fishing is less about skill or equipment, and is more about knowledge.

When I’ve hired a guide, I’ve wound up actually catching something. The guides know the local river or lake. They can read the conditions and understand what makes the fish want to bite. Their years of experience help them help their customers like me to have an exciting time. For me, hiring the guide is worth every penny!

It’s fun to fish, but it’s even better to catch!
