Cod fishing can be described as an illness whose symptoms manifest themselves in many varying forms. For those that actively target these iconic fish on a regular basis, the addictive nature of the search is never ending.
Every cast hangs in wait of that next strike, regardless of how big or how many come before, it’s never enough. It is an addiction that has no cure and one you wouldn’t take even if there were.
It seems strange for a grown man to yearn the feel of frost-ridden swag on the banks of the river when the warmth of family and comfortable bed awaits at home. But this is the nature of the beast; to understand these fish is the cruelest twist of all, as it can never be done in a single lifetime.
