Someone once told me that baseball’s great “Sultan of Swat”, Babe Ruth, actually had a record number of strikeouts as well as his record number of home runs yet he is remembered for the later rather than the former. Both records required, however, that he swing away with all that was in him. The difference between fame and failure for him was only a matter of “missing it (or not) by that much”.

So it was that the events of the week got me to thinking and I resolved to keep gettin’ out there as much as possible and keep fishin’ whenever I can and keep lookin’ for those moments that take my breath away wherever I am so come the end of my days, I won’t be saying I missed the fullness of life by just “that much”.

I love this addiction called urban fly fishin’

    May I simply just say what a relief to find somebody that
    really understands what they’re discussing on the web. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular since
    you definitely have the gift.
