Karmic Payoffs Do Not Exist

The perfect fly fishing condition.

I emailed the forecast late last night to Nick Murray, who responded “Too late to back out now.” OK, then.

I’d already bailed on a Montauk trip this week, and got burned by it. Stripers still eat during Small Craft Advisories.

You go on days like today, you figure you are owed something. But the fish don’t know shit about Karma or paying dues or risk-reward. They’re either there or not. They were not.

But Mr. Murray caught a fluke.
