Fishing can be a way to let the noise of your life fall by the wayside.
Sometimes I need that.
During tough weeks, even a single day on the water can fill up those holes in my psyche that are dragging me down. My energy is renewed and I can deal with whatever struggle is pestering me at the moment.
No matter how bad times get, after a few hours on the water I've forgotten it all.
It helps if the fishing is really good, or really technical. That intense focus on fishing helps me completely forget I was even stressed in the first place.
Then when I get back on shore, it's time to work.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
