This whole episode makes me consider the fragility of life and, less importantly, the economy. After all, if you trace things right back, then it’s likely that tens of thousands of deaths and trillions of dollars of lost market capital are attributed to a bat. Yes, probably one bat that had a fairly common bat infection that mutated.
If a single bat can disrupt normal life almost globally then it’s fair to say that there are probably thousands of unknown unknowns (as opposed to known unknowns) that can bugger up your fishing in any given year. Therefore, once all this has blown through, I intend to treasure every day’s fishing even more than before. After all it could all be gone long before it should.
I hope everyone stay fit and well in the coming weeks,
