Fisherman's prayer

Recommended Posts

A long time ago I recall reading on OFC what I think was a fisherman's prayer or something similar. Kind of "I fish therefore I am" statement. The only lines I can remember read something like..... "Fishing is not something I do, it is something that I am" and "Once you understand this, you will understand me"

 

A little vague I know....but if you can help me find this verse, it would be much appreciated.

 

 

Thanks,

i grew up fishing at a camp that had this on the wall:

 

Fisherman's Prayer

 

God grant that I may live to fish

 

For another shining day,

 

But when my final cast is made

 

I then most humbly pray,

 

When nestled in your landing net

 

As I lay peacefully asleep,

 

You'll smile at me and judge

 

That I'm "good enough to keep."

I am a fisherman for life.

I will always be a fisherman.

It is not something I do,

it is who I am.

 

Fishing is not an escape.

It is where I belong,

where I am supposed to be.

 

It is not a place,

but a lifelong journey.

It is a passage my father showed me,

and that I will show to others.

 

When you understand all of this,

you will know me,

and we will fish together.

This one is good enough to keep in the memory bank.

Lord, as I travel miles out into the lake,

In search of the bounty you so graciously did create.

Watch over me should my $15,000 motor die once more,

And grant me enough gas to blow myself to shore.
