Why does even the thought of fishing produce such a powerful response in an angler? Fishing seems to make the synapses of the mind, body and soul fire on high. The mind's eye takes over as the primary source of vision. Is it because of ancient DNA or the cellular designs in our bodies that link back to our hunter/gatherer past? Is it because of the connection to adventure and our natural desire to seek? Is it the connection to all that is around us, the diversity we call "nature"? I'm not sure. I think we just instinctively know when it's time to go fishing.
