An interview with Eric
Me: The vast selection of of floats on tackle shop counters must be totally bewildering to the average angler. How do you make a really shrewd choice?
Eric: My wife used to say I'm a hard man to know. A closed book. Complained about it all the time. She was beautiful, God I loved her but I drove her away.
Me: Can you tell me how to clean maggots to ensure that they sink and how to get an even colour when dyeing them?
Eric: It floats around - gotta land on someone. It was my turn, that's all. I was in the way of the tornado I just didn't expect the storm to last as long as it has.
Me: Which coarse fish produce the most eggs?
Eric: They say it has no memory. That's where I want to live the rest of my life: a warm place with no memory. Open up a little hotel right on the beach.
Me: Which freshwater fish live the longest?
Eric: Yeah, that's the way it is really. I guess it comes down to a simple choice really: get busy living or get busy dying.
Me: Well thanks Eric , I've got to get my bus now.
