My hook is baited with a dream - I fish for Peace ... Robert Service
"Will the fish still bite in the rain?" I ask.
"It ainít raining down there under the water," he says. "The flathead come out in this. Mind you, different story fishing in a river. Iíve seen yellowbelly out west go bonkers in the rain."
"How do you know when a fish is going bonkers?"
"They start preaching about the end of the world," Slim chuckles.

|My fishing days began in England, tempting, with maggots and bread paste, small roach, perch, bream and carp with my Father (Michael, see his WWII diary), my Grandfather (Albert) and my Uncle (Len). They were the finest kind.
Now I fish with flies for Nova Scotia's wild trout and salmon.
The four flies on this page are taken from The Tent Dwellers (Sports fishing in Nova Scotia in 1908) by Albert Bigelow Paine.
Piscator non solum piscatur......
There is more to fishing than just catching fish.
