"The old men fished for many reasons, I suppose, but angling gave them no greater reward than solitude, the priceless pleasure of spending unencumbered time along a cold stream in the presence of trout. No other bounty they had known matched these moments of quiet during which they desperately tried to smuggle themselves, in spirit if not in body, back into the natural world, the place where they were most at ease, truly at home."
