Good point. I don't need a rod and reel to drink beer in a boat, either. Just need beer, and boat. I've done that a lot.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, Teach a man to fish and he'll sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

I like to fish because it helps to teach patients it takes time to catch a fish, sometimes it takes seconds other times minutes to hours, but another reason I fish is to watch the day go by.
