Patience...

Everyone should fish. I make this statement not only because fishing is fun, but it is an activity that is indicative of how life really is every day for everyone.

Every day when you wake up, you are casting a line. You wait patiently for a bite and continue to create action, cast, and reel until something bites the bait you throw out there. If everyone learned how to fish, perhaps the world would be a more patient place.

Patience...is a virtue.

"Patience...the ability to wait for something without excessive frustration is a valuable character trait. The proverb has been traced back to 'Piers Plowman' (1377) by William Langland and is similar to the Latin, Maxima enim..patientia virtus (Patience is the greatest virtue) and the French, Patience est une grand vertu. (Patience is a great value.)"

Patience. You need it to fish. In some instances, it should be a requirement to live. I believe that it is through patience that the greatest rewards are achieved.
