2:00 pm. Everyday. Thunderstorms.
According to those who are "in-the-know" about the weather, I live in a rainforest. We get just enough rain to classify us as such, and most years it keeps the fishing up. It also keeps the grass, bugs, and humidity up, but the pollen stays down so I guess it's an even trade-off.
Jacob and I spend a lot of time, probably too much, trying to figure out if these afternoon fronts turn the fishing on or put them completely off. I know people that swear to both, so I suppose either could be right. They say that fish are sensitive to all these phenomena. The moon phases, storm fronts, time of day, they all factor into whether or not you're going to have a good day on the water.
Are we just coming up with excuses to make ourselves feel better after a poor fishing day? Or, are these beings so well in tune with their environment that even the slightest pressure change will alter their habits? I'm sure I'll never really know and I guess that's ok, it's just another fishy mystery.
I just heard the first boom of thunder, the afternoon storm is rolling in. I've called the cat it, checked the car windows, pulled in the clothes off the line. Just like clockwork, every day.
I bet the fish just started biting.
