When I became a diver I stopped being a deep sea fisherman. There are such special moments diving. Two things happened sort of at the same time. I noticed all the fishing “Junk” in the ocean and remember how many times I’ve had to “cut” a line … it doesn’t magically disappear. I also had a severe food poisoning incident eating fish that wasn’t properly stored and/or prepared. Swimming with the fishies is much more entertaining than eating them or fishing for them.
