Fishing isn't always about the fish...

I so many people get upset when the fish do not bite.

But they forget it is not the catching of the fish only, it is also the experience.

Tonight while fishing this fine loon surfaced next to my boat.

He stayed for a minute and then under he went only to surface several hundred feet away.

The great outdoors are filled with surprises and interesting things if  you just let things happen at their own pace.

Some of my best (all the time) fishing I caught nothing; just a nice ice cold cooler within easy reach.

Bill, I bet this can go for other activities also.  There is always extra joy if we keep out minds open.

William- I couldn't agree more with you. I love to fish and yes, it's not just about catching them either. Fishing teaches you patience, focus and if you're smart, it teaches you to observe what's around you.

Not everyone appreciates the value of enjoying the experience in everyday life. Great wisdom here!

We have not been fishing in many years. We owned boats and did a lot of fishing when we lived in Portsmouth, VA.

Thanks for sharing a bit of the beauty of the northwoods Bill, always a good day when you get to see a loon close up.
