Every bass Pro angler feels a mystical vibration, the crazy to go get on the lake now out of sight of the land. The ungraspable of life. Out on the deck of your bass boat you have the metaphysical feeling that all is right, you get paid for the activity of fishing. Be content for your trouble and wholesome exercise that dogs you and influences you. You think it and you breathe it.
