Fishing for wiper from a boat is a lot like baking. But without the oven. You’re usually elbow deep in a thick batter stirring. Then you sit around and wait. Sometimes, on the rare good day, you make meringue. It’s all frothy on top. Underneath it’s ten pounds of muscle with a hook in its mouth. But with baking there’s no machine beeping, telling you when it’s time to cast. So that’s another difference I guess.
On the other hand, the fish finder could be the kitchen timer telling you when the pie is cooked. The pie, then, would symbolize a part of the female reproductive anatomy, the general maturation of which would symbolize puberty which in turn would symbolize spring. The one million eggs represent all the fish I will eventually catch this year.
