Life as a Fisherman

By ||Fishing|

It's days like today looking out a fogged up, snow covered window that I think about the moments in my life as a fisherman which led me to where I am today. It's almost as there was a plan that I was unaware of, a plan that led me here, a force, I guess you [...]
