Everything surrenders to the strength of the fish.
When you come to the lake on good faith with informed, reasonable expectations, you can create magic.
If a trust can be established and your will accepted and validated, your offer may truly be considered.
This doesn’t mean that the resolution will be easy, or will take place….simply that there is the possibility of resolution.
You cannot fight a fish forever.
Once the hook is set, you must let the fish go where it will….it’s a simultaneous act of discipline and optimism.
The hope being that when the fish grows tired, the fisherman will still be connected by a thread that leads them to the same place.
In the end, it is up to the fish to determine whether it will be caught or not.
The fish that refuses to give up, having the strength, tenacity and guile to escape, lives to fight another day.
It is you that must be patient, allowing the fish to grow weary…
Only then will you receive a prize worth treasuring, the experience of catching a worthy opponent.
