When I was but a lad my grandfather used to take me fishing in Choctawhatchee Bay in Florida. While I don’t remember a lot about it, I do remember him telling me that it was very important that one kept one’s mouth shut while fishing, because fish could hear you breathe. Chances are he was just having a little fun with me or maybe wanted me to be quiet, but it’s a fishing superstition I’ve lived with all my life.
(I am getting to a contest with this, I promise…)
Wizards gotta have fishing superstitions…maybe certain routines you go through before casting a line that don’t really have anything mechanical to do with catching fish, but you honestly believe somehow it’s gonna help you land the whopper. Share those superstitions with us and we’ll make it worth your while. In fact, we’ll do something to actually help your arcane angling.
