I truly empathize with Dea Gayther and Sir Paul, but remain ambivalent about angling. As Prosek and many other painters know, both fishing and painting share many things in common, including a desire for spiritual integration with nature. Trout are predators, and, given the opportunity, will devour their own species' eggs and young. And yet, I recently caught a cutthroat trout so trancendently beautiful that, despite counting on having fresh fish for dinner, I simply could not kill it.
