Quote appearing on print:

There is no alarm more welcome than nature’s predawn call to me. “I’m going fishing”: a statement whose meaning is as special in childhood as it is later in life; it has been the subject of daydreams, transporting me to bygone days time and time again. It has become a lifelong calling, and my heart beat increases with mere thought of the twitch of line or ripple of water. Fishing begins the night before, when I methodically sort out my wares, make sandwiches, stock a stained tackle box or broken-in creel, and imagine the next morning, while secretly praying for good weather. In preparation there are little things — tying knots, checking the weight of line, sorting either freshly tied flies or my top five lures in standstill moments of dreamy recognition and nostalgia to be relived the next day. To cricket chirp and dewy grass I awake and creep to the water as if I’d sneak up on the fish. Interrupting the water, I cast, and I always love the smooth action of the day’s first cast. The bait’s gentle blip is a calming sound to me, and I see and hear everything: turtlehead shyly disappearing amid weed lines, geese patrolling shore in unison, blue heron in mid-hunt on one leg statue-still. Negotiating rocks or lily pads, searching for holes or fish-beds with eagle’s eyes, noticing a solitary ripple in the corner, I seek a worthy adversary and when I find him we are going to tango. And when the dance is over, I will recall a similar fish caught years before, thank him for the fight and go looking for his brother with The Next Cast.
