Sometimes sharing secrets can make a fisherman's day all the more enjoyable

Putting it mildly, fishermen are a secretive lot. Unlike so many other outdoor pursuits -- in which knowledge is swapped without hesitation -- fisherman guard their secrets as they would bars of gold. Without hesitation, they will lie to you, and, if pushed, send you on some pretty wild goose chases. The part about this that makes me grin is how they do it so convincingly -- stonefaced, nary a quiver or blink that might indicate they are pulling your leg. It would take a lie detector machine to catch them in the act.
