Pat Neal has a problem. It's not gambling, drinking, or sex. His addiction comes in the form of the salmon and steelhead that swim in the rainforest rivers of the Olympic Peninsula. As a child, he was diagnosed with a severe case of fishing attention deficit disorder (FADD), a disease that plagues him to this day. Of his fellow fishing enthusiasts, Neal notes:

"People with fishing problems may spend inordinate amounts of time talking about their disease, even if they do show up for work. Most anglers are in complete denial over how much they spend on fishing until other members of the family start whining about food or shoes."

Based upon the ever-popular Lord's Prayer, The Fisherman's Prayer has been reformulated for today's modern fishing conditions and is not limited to the water. The Fisherman's Prayer works on all species of fresh and saltwater game fish. Don't go fishing without a prayer!
