I set myself a 10 minute exercise today.My mission, if I chose to accept it, was to write a piece using my intuition as a prompt. With nary a hesitation, subconscious the hub of my life –trout fishing it is.
I grew up seeing my father’s coterie of small and not so small bronzed angler trophies gain more and more room on the dining room mantel shelf. He was a champion angler and with a special love of trout fishing and it struck me that there is a synergy between fishing techniques and any wide casting ego that is determined to take you down into the murky depths.
Trout fishing requires the right tackle, sinker and a hook.
Ego: The right tackle is a taken– a range of limiting beliefs coupled with a hook and a sinker that will work every time given the opportunity.
Trout fishing – requires a bait use either garden worms or a lure.
Ego: any pretty sly lure will do the trick
Trout fishing: The back eddies and quiet deep water are the best spots to catch your fish.
Ego: definitely the back eddies and seemingly innocent looking situations will often give the most rewarding catch.
Trout fishing: Make your own colouful lures to skim across the surface to attract your prize.
Ego: It can create the ultimate lure, where the barb is hidden so well that it can hook you before you even are aware of it’s presence.
Trout fish: Before cooking you need to gut, skin and wash the fish.
Ego: Gut, skin and rub in salt for best effect.
