Artist's Description

…please? I am not a fisherman, but I do understand the concept of getting in a boat at 5am and heading out to sea to spend a few hours alone with your thoughts. I also understand fishing as a profession. But what is the purpose of this? It’s not social (nobody’s talking to anyone), it’s not private (20 feet apart?), it’s not a sport (where’s the competition?). Lugging all that gear out on a murky Saturday morning, to fish in a canal? I don’t get it!

[Grand Union Canal, New Bradwell, Milton Keynes, Bucks, UK] – With thanks to my good friend Jan for prompting me to post it :-)
