I didn't want you to think that I forgot about posting. I have been working a lot, and have done nothing fishing related since the banquet. So, in the mail I received a newsletter from the MN Zen Meditation Center and they had a quote at the top of it that I found interesting and will share with you here.
"The purpose of a fish trap is to catch fish.
When the fish are caught, the trap is forgotten.
The purpose of a rabbit snare is to catch rabbits.
When the rabbits are caught, the snare is forgotten.
The purpose of words is to convey ideas.
When the ideas are grasped, the words are forgotten.
Where can I find the man who has forgotten words?
He is the one I would like to talk to."
