You see, in our house there was a sort of family prejudice against going
fishing if you hadn't permission. But it would frequently be bad judgment
to ask. So I went fishing secretly, as it were--way up the Mississippi.
Do not tell fish stories where the people know you; but particularly,
don't tell them where they know the fish.
