Recognition is one thing and some do make a living from it,however my biggest payday is seeing the twinkle in their eyes after the catch. It can be a 5 year old or an 80 year old ,it's all the same. When he says you've changed my life.I mean how powerful is that.

Its the fact that you have found a beautiful harvest and your friend can do nothing but look at you and say WOW. Where did that come from? Just smile and stay humble. That is why we are fisherman. Whether we are catching or out for the challenge. I like the challenge myself. I'm getting to deep.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
