One of my dreams is living in a white house located in a hill overlooking a perfect trout stream. My wife shares this dream at least to some extent.

There is an interesting thought in Where the trout are all as long as your leg by John Gierach. He states that at the age of six: “I already knew all I’d ever know for sure about fishing: that when done properly it is socially unacceptable, and that the farther out there you go the better it gets.”

So where is the socially unacceptable part of my dream? Probably my wife would argue that I shouldn’t be fishing all the time.
