Imagine, if you will, that you started fishing your junior year in high school, 25 years ago. And although you did your best, in all that time, you never caught the big one. You did all the right things, you paid for the best gear, everything you could imagine. Still, never the big one. Your other friends from other places caught giant fish every so often. Your friends in Boston and Detroit landed them by the score. But you got nothing... zip... nada... squadoosh.
