JIMMY JOHN­SON

Marlin - - FEEDBACK -

I very much en­joyed your pro­file on Jimmy John­son. In par­tic­u­lar, I was sur­prised to read that John­son fishes alone 90 per­cent of the time, and that he has caught five blue mar­lin while fish­ing alone. I never thought I would have any­thing in com­mon with John­son; how­ever, I have been fish­ing alone since mov­ing to Kona, Hawaii, in 1997. A spe­cial sat­is­fac­tion comes from clear­ing all the lines alone, and re­leas­ing a blue mar­lin alone. Bent over the side of the boat, with the mar­lin bill in your left hand while re­mov­ing the hook with your right, you are look­ing right into the eye of the fish. There is a con­nec­tion be­tween you and the mar­lin, and it seems a look of ap­pre­ci­a­tion from the fish as he swims back to the depths. Thanks to
