“Time on the Water”…..Quote #14

“Walking through the bookstore, I got this irresistible urge to reread The Old Man and the Sea. So I bought it.
As the book opens, the old man has gone 84 days without a fish. I know the feeling, buddy. I can identify with a long losing streak, all right. But it happens that the old man once had an even longer losing streak, 87 days. After that streak broke, he caught big ones every day for three weeks. That I can’t identify with.”

Thank you very much for making my get a way week so enjoyable. Dan and I had a great time. You and Susanne should be commended on how clean and well maintained your cabins and lodge are. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking to go to Canada fishing and I look forward to the time I can come back.
