Northward I will go, well, after I drop the Lovely Melis at the airport, finalize a bit of business, and conduct one last inventory of supplies required for this venture. I should return in a week. At least that is the plan currently. I leave you with some quotes of Izzak Walton.
And let me tell you that every misery I miss is a new blessing.
I have known a very good, fisher angle diligently four or six hours for a river carp, and not have a bite
[T]is not all fishing to fish.
You will find angling to be like the virtue of humility, which has a calmness of spirit and a world of other blessings attending upon it. (I’ve found this to be true - ed.)
That which is everybody’s business, is nobody’s business.
Let the blessing of St. Peter’s Master be . . . upon all that are lovers of virtue; and dare trust in His providence; and be quiet; and go a-Angling.
“It’s not about catching, although some folks who visit in June might differ. It’s about life and what the river teaches us on a daily basis. If you think you have it figured out, let me know. I would like to think the glass is still half full with another lifetime of learning yet ahead. We’re all in different stages of filling that glass.” -Rusty Gates
I am outta here, Wizard. Can’t say I’m behind schedule, ‘cause I’m not on one. Should make it to Two Arrows by hatch time.
See ya tomorrow night. I’ll have your rig prepped for you, brother.Posted by John Venlet on 04/23 at 11:52 AM

That’s real life.Posted by Silicon Graybeard on 04/24 at 07:25 PM
