As a rule, a city person who doesn’t make his living from fishing spends a lot more money on a fishing trip than he earns back in fish. But this isn’t such a big deal, is it?
He who decides to go ice fishing deprives himself of the urban pleasures of Friday nights — evening drinks, going out on the town and what not. But he makes the sacrifice without the slightest pang of regret. He knows the value of this fatal passion, “my ice fishing,” with its accompanying auto breakdowns, snow strandings, foul weather and road jitters. And he will never give it all up for the dubious pleasures of the City.
