When's the last time you were so excited you could see it in your hands?
I was talking with a friend once at a party, talking about how schools of striped bass can appear before the boat and then disappear like ghosts.
Sitting at the table, my hands started to shake.
The friend laughed and said, “I’ve never been that excited about anything in my life.” That shocked me. Fishing is powerful; it's had a big impact on my life.
Even if it's not fishing that does it, I think more people should live a life that gets their hands shaking with excitement––on a regular basis.
Has that every happened to you?
If the answer is no, where are you fishing today?
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
