It seems the infidel who wrote this may be poking fun at the Fishing God. Not wise:nervs:
When I have had a bad streak, I will often do a dance to the Fishing God and make a small sacrifice, such as a pinch of dip, a bite of Snickers or a handful of peanuts. When I’ve had a particularly bad streak, I’ll just chunk one of my brothers into the water. It seems the Fishing God enjoys that type of humor.
Finally, after catching a good fish I will give thanks to the Fishing God using the same methods listed above. This helps prevent the type of bad streaks that will require a sacrifice anyway.
So, if you see some idiot on the water dancing around and throwing perectly good food or tobacco, it is probably either me or Finless.

Agreed, Aquadump. This article is blasphemous. Is the author really so bold as to poke fun at the Fishing Gods? :yikes: May his mono go brittle and his hook eyes rust over! Doesn't he know that there are more than one? Does our reverence towards the Fishing Gods make us heathens? Pagans? Both? Mama would be so proud!!
Ah yes. Good to see that someone else takes the FG seriously. Of course the article is blasphemous. Once the FG has claimed you as his own, it is very dangerous to leave his service. As Aquadump suggested, the FG is a tyranical god, rejoicing in pain and sacrifice. Often, just taking a bad fall will turn around a bad day of fishing. When you cry out in pain, then curse out loud, the FG sees that, he likes it, and he will often have mercy on you from that point on. But of course, it is best when one of your fishing partners makes this sacrifice. Besides tobacco or food, the FG will also accept libations of beer, poured directly into the river. Do not try this with wine--the FG is not some namby-pamby wine drinker.
