Your Never Too Old and Your Never Too Young, Never Too Rich or
Never To Poor To Enjoy the Sport of Fishing, but do yourself a favor and
take a child fishing. You will gain a friend for a lifetime...but teach him to protect our
natural resources so that future generations have the same opportunities we do. If
God didn't intend for us to spend more time fishing than working, he wouldn't have put
more water here than land. Enjoy your fishing and keep what you need to eat, but
release the rest for me to catch. Until next week, God Bless.
That was part of a few lines from a voice-over I did over background music from a cut from
the song by Don Williams, "Lord I hope this day is good" years ago. It was used as the
closing of my syndicated TV fishing show back in the early 1980's.
Jerry Maslar, one of the professors of Trout University, emailed me a picture of his grandson
Drew, taken on a fishing trip with his father Stephen Maslar. They fished in the DuPont State
Forest in North Carolina Saturday. Drew got to reel in a couple of 8-9 inch rainbow
trout, proving my above point that your never to young to fish.
It won't be long before both Drew's granddad as well as I have a chance to prove your never
to old to fish.
As far as too poor to fish is concerned, keep in mind that fishing makes you richer in more
ways than monetarily, but money wise, as long as you can come up with a hook,and a long
stick, you can always find a few grasshoppers or crickets for bait and catch some fish.
If you think you are too rich to fish, give us a call at Perfect Fly and we will gladly help you
solve that problem.
