A PLEA FOR FISHING:
Now it came to pass that a group existed who called themselves fishermen. And lo, there were many fish in the waters all around. In fact, the whole area was surrounded by streams and lakes filled with fish. And the fish were hungry.

Fishing or Drinking
My cousin Phil was asked by guys he went to school with or worked with how they had got drunk on the weekend and had a hangover. Then how much fun it was, and then asked him what he did on the weekend. He gladly said, "I went fishing." They thought that was a little lame.

In a little fishing village in Scotland, the people gathered to welcome home a fishing vessel that had been away at sea for many days. As the boat neared the shore, the men gazed eagerly toward the dock where a group of their loved ones were waiting. The skipper, looking through his telescope,

THE DOVE, THE FISH AND THE ANCHOR
If ever you have the chance to visit the catacombs in Rome, those tunnels under the ancient city, where many of the early Christians were buried, you can see the symbols of faith on their tombs. Three common symbols appear: the dove, the fish, and the anchor.

A hotel in Galveston, Texas, that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico, faced a potential problem. The edge of the hotel hangs over the water. Before the hotel opened, someone thought, "What if someone decides to fish out of the windows?" This person then erected signs saying not to fish from the hotel
I love doing chidren's sermons, but it doesn't always work out quite the way I expect. So it went one morning when I spoke to the children about the loaves and fish.

He never went fishing
Let me close with this thought. I was reading on the Internet last week. Once, a man got ready to go fishing. He assembled everything you need to be a good fisherman. He bought poles, and nets, and bait, and a boat. He got very well prepared. And he knew how to fish. But he

The most popular exotic fish dived for is the shark. Did you know that a shark can be kept in fish tanks and they will only grow in proportion to their surroundings so a fully mature shark can be as small as 6 inches yet that same shark in the open waters
