I used to be upset when I did not catch anything.
Then, on a trip to the Outer Banks with Bob Land, Jerry Milne, and some other friends, Bob Hsieh said to me, “Close your eyes. What do you feel?”
Me: the warm sun and the breeze.
Bob: what do you hear?
Me: the waves on the shore and the birds.
Bob: how do you feel?
Me: relaxed and happy to be with friends.
Bob: what could be better? Catching fish is just a bonus.
It was with that conversation, I went from being a “catcher man” to a fisherman.
