As a younger ISSTD member I fondly remember reading the president’s reports written by Rich Chefetz. Each edition of the newsletter would start with Rich’s piece, that often took us readers on a fishing expedition with him. He used to take us through the trip, helping us understand the art of fishing and the tactics that helped attract the fish to the bait and ‘convinced’ it to bite. But biting is not the end of the story, the angler then has to successfully reel the fish in, delicately working the line to ensure the fish does not get off the hook, get snagged on rocks, or break the line.
