I am an optimist. There is no part of me that thinks we're headed for world collapse. I will bet on the human race 101% of the time, no question.
If I haven't fished for a long time, it's nice to get away from the rest of the human race. It helps me come back to civilization with some banked calm.
After a day on the water, even for less than an hour, I am happy. I am helpful.
I am Zen.
So maybe fish a little today so YOU don't cause a world collapse.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
