I may take a long time, say a year, just sitting and fishing around, putting the thing into some sort of shape. Iris Murdoch

For some time now, I've been thinking about fishing and making art and how they're pretty similar. There's a whole process you have to learn in order to catch a fish/make an artwork. Your equipment/materials matter. Patience is useful. An end result (artwork or fish) is desirable but doesn't always eventuate.

I asked my cousin, a keen angler and marine scientist, to teach me how to fish and convinced him to let me document the process.
