Nada? Zilch? Riens? Intet? Nothing?

Bob,

Find comfort in the fact that my last trip was a zero-fish trip too.
And the trip before that...

Yup, that's 19 trips (nineteen!) without a fish!

I must be jinxed or cursed or whatever. It must be those drawings of Mohammed or something I have done, because I have completely lost my touch--which although it might never have been golden, at least has been shining just a bit.

I have had one take on each of my last two trips, but not hooked or landed a single fish. I'm slowly sliding into some kind of fishing depression, and for each trip I take I believe less and less that I will run into some action. And not only have I caught nothing myself, but the people I have been with have caught scarcely a fish. And when they have been out without me, their fishing has been fine... sigh!

The worst incident was my latest trip to Sweden, where a good friend called while I was punching my way through the ice near the shore to get to open water. He was envious and wanted to be where I was, but announced that he would take a hort trip in his local area.

1 hours later a text message ticked in on my cell phone: "4 fish in the first 5 casts. All nice fish. Largest one about 60 centimeters (24 inches). Lost one the same size..."

Sigh!

And I was flogging the freezing, Swedish water to foam to no avail.

Sigh!

Spring, where art thou?
