nothing's biting today

there's a saying: give a man a fish and he eats for a day; teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime. that's all good and well, but sometimes the fish are just too smart to fall for the worm. that being said, some fishermen (and not-so-fisher-men) are pretty adept and can find ways to fool the fish. you know, all those shiny lures, and wiggling thingamabobs, and casting techniques, and all that jazz - i was never one for fishing so i'm not particularly in the knowhow.

but for the rest of us, i guess we just have to hope that the fish are either just that stupid (but, really, who wants to eat stupid fish), or that the fish are just considerate and sympathetic enough to spare a bite.
