aye, there's thee spirit

"We who go a-fishing are a peculiar people. Like other men and women in many respects, we are like one another, and like no others, in other respects. We understand each other's thoughts by an intuition of which we know nothing. We cast our flies on many waters, where memories and fancies and facts rise, and we take them and show them to each other,
and small or large, we are content with our catch. "
W. C. Prime, I Go A-Fishing [1873]
