The catching of fish, said the Sage of Chocoloskee, is but an incident in fishing. He told the frozen truth. To be out in the open where fish are; to watch them at their great business of living; to see them in the water or out of the water; to fish for them, and even to hook them and have them get away-all this is wonderfully worth while-wonderfully better worth while than merely to catch and keep the stiffening fading body of one of the most beautiful forms of life.
