45,000 years of practice.
Nearly fifty millennia we’ve been flicking little hooks into the water.
Hooks and nets and leeches and worms and flies cast out into the deep, hoping for a slippery wet meal.
And after all that time, all those generations of experience and knowledge accumulated, we still can’t guarantee a bite.
Sometimes, you come home open handed.
But that’s don’t stop us from going out to cast a line tomorrow.
