A few fishing cliches that perhaps Dave Shadow is not aware of.
The fish won’t come forth, if the winds blow from the north.
The fish will come with open mouth if the wind blows in from the south.
If attention isn’t paid to the barometer the fish won’t come within a kilometer.
You will never catch that large thresher, if at first you don’t check the barometric pressure.
If the water temp drops too quickly the quantity of your catch may be sticky.
If the fish you catch seems too few, try tomorrow, they may be out the wazoo.
Rosalie needn’t worry about all this tripe, our way of life the communists will never swipe.
