I used to go fishing once in a while (I didn't), I had a friend who drove us to interesting places and I payed for the petrol as I didn't have a car at the time. He was a master fisherman.
Boy was it fun to go fishing. He always had lots of good advice and he was right there to answer my questions.
We don't go fishing anymore as he can no longer afford to run a car as things have gotten tough for master fishermen.
I don't go fishing any more but luckily I have found special sites where I can look at what other people have caught.
What do you guys think, should I keep on going fishing on my own or just go to special sites where I can claim the fish that the new ultra exclusive club of celebrity superfishermen have caught ? The advantage of the latter is of course that I never have to clean or gut the fish, or do any fishing, or leave the house. Or study independently with a book or any of that old fashioned stuff.
And I have more pictures of bigger and more impressive fish now than I could possibly have caught myself. And in a way they are mine now too.
Aren't they ?
