I agree with what all of you said about why fishing is so good for us. Besides those reasons to be on the water, when friends ask me why I fish, I tell them it’s to satisfy that million year old gene I possess to hunt. To be out there trying to find “game” requires us to harness all that ancient knowledge to be successful. Unlike hunting on land, we can release our prey for another day or another angler. Great podcast guys.

I’ll tell you exactly why I’m addicted to fishing. It’s always the ones that get away. Sure it’s always nice to land a bull red or a big snook. But the ones that get away… like the tarpon I had on last weekend for literally 5 seconds… THAT’S what brings me back.
