Open Season: Even if 'the fish are a bonus,' it still is a ton of fun to try

Email

"The fish are a bonus."

My dad's famous line; uttered in a slow, melodic way like an algebra teacher explaining the Pythagorean Theorem.

Count on hearing it the moment a disgruntled fisherman grumbles about the day's catch - or lack thereof.

"Catching isn't important," he continues, raising a finger for emphasis. "It's the time spent outside that's a blessing."

Who does he think he is - Confucius?
