Fisherman's Luck

"Pitch a lucky man into the Nile, says the Arabian proverb, and he will come up with a fish in his mouth!"

I remember fishing with my Grandpa. I remember catching nothing. I remember pouting.

My Grandpa seemed to always have good luck when fishing, even when he didn't catch anything. But he didn't measure fisherman's luck by the number of fish caught. He measured luck in jokes cast, prank victims hooked, and smiles reeled in.

Happy Saint Patrick's Birthday Grandpa!
