It's doing as little as possible, while appearing to be actually doing something, and drinking as much beer as possible. ;)

You are describing the art of fishing. The actual art of fishing is actually going out and trying to catch something. The art of fishing is going out and consuming as much beer and junk food as the body can handle while moving as little as possible.

This kind of fishing is probably not a good idea, neither for me nor for RFC ;)

There's also the fact that you don't have to wait 'til April. It is always fishing season in your beer cooler and these type of anglers always get a bite because they keep their fisheries well stocked! And they always seem to carry their favorite watering hole with them. :lol:

One of my friends tells me he goes simply to harass the hell out of the fish.

I think Annachie is pointing out that it is an excellent way to unwind while stopping to smell the roses. My friend, let's say his name rhymes with Bob, seems to actually get upset when he gets a bite...

"Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel"

"SOB!" Knocking over his beer and chips while scrambling for the reel.

Annachie is right that it'd be "just what the doctor ordered" for David. Even if his wrists prevent him from actually casting.

My friends and I once told Bob we were going to take him carp fishing because they are so eager to be caught that they actually jump into your boat! People have been seriously injured and possibly killed by flying silver carp. Consider being headbutted by a flying 40+ lb fish.

Drinking beer while dealing with Asian carp is not advisable! You may catch a fish and a concussion and or contusion.

Wabash River, fyi. (My personal experience.) Can be found in other places as well.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

Yeah, that's fishing.

Except for the beer drinking, I don't like the nasty stuff.

Some of my best days fishing were done with a cane pole with a bobber and nothing but a couple pieces of split shot underneath it (used to use a dry hook until I had a perfectly good nap interrupted by a fish biting an unbaited hook) to keep it in the general area of where I put it.

There are times like this when I wish this forum had a means of "Up Voting" comments. I'd willingly upvote this one until my fingers got tired.

David, listen to your soul mate. She has your best interests at heart like mine does me.
****

Just my opinion of course and probably not worth the paper it's not written on.

This is an early version of Dark Fall. Three more snippets are in the snippet index, which is at the very top of the list.

There are conflicting stories about when it will be out. One says it will be part of Uncompromising Honor, the other says it will be one of the Baen free stories, published at the same time as UH. It may also be part of the rumored next anthology.

It's also been thought to be the story in "House of Lies" - the Havenite Compendium.
