Living in a rather large urban area, with its daily stress and pressure, going fishing is one of the ideal ways of putting the all important "here and now" on hold for a short time. Re group, catch your breath, de-stress. Picking a species to after, strategizing on how its gonna get done, well those are "stresses" of a pleasant sort, if you will.

You load up, head out get there, and set out on the quest. Well you have done everything on your part to make this a success, but sometimes, the fish don't get the memo. Now what? Well, you kinda kick back, float along a lazy, winding increasingly beautiful creek and shoreline, and realize that the creator has provided many other ways to de-stress, and recompose yourself.

Take in the beauty of nature all around you. Let the eyes take over and let the brain absorb what we have all been blessed with if we just take the time to reflect! Here is one of my favorite North Texas "re-group" areas to fish. When its on, it's as good as it gets for the white bass spring runs. When the fish are there but don't get the memo, hey, pull out the summer sausage, crackers, rat cheese, and Big Red, have a "floating lunch," with the ice chest lid your banquet table, and take in the scenery. Does wonders for the mind as well as the soul:











You might even luck into an unwilling participant or two!:



Fish or no fish, love floating that lazy, meandering creek!
