‘Time on the Water”…….Quote #5

“Musky fishing is not for pessimists. You’ve got to believe that next cast will be the one, a notion that falls just short of being completely absurd. Realism must be avoided at all costs. If I knew I wasn’t going to catch a keeper for days at a time, it would be mighty hard to go out there every day. I should know it. That’s the way it’s always been, for me and for most others too. I guess you could say I know I probably won’t catch anything, but I don’t believe it.”
