I am a fisherman for life. I will always be a fisherman. It's not something I do, it is who I am. Fishing is not an escape. It is where I belong, where I'm supposed to be. It is not a place, but a lifelong journey. It is a passage my father showed me, and I will show others. When you understand all this, you will know me, and we will fish together--Fisherman's Oath
