I just got given a new fishing license. I’m legal to fish. I sort of fish by accident. I usually don’t bait my hook even.
I just like being out on the pier at dusk, with a line bobbing around in the water. The tide has leveled out and the beach is almost cleared out. Everything is quieting down.
I like to eat my sandwich, watch the sunset and watch the sky softly darken and see which stars come out first.
If I do catch a fish, it was purely by accident. It’s really not about the fishing. It’s being able to ponder without attracting attention.
