In the first episode of ‘The Accidental Angler’ (aired last night on BBC2), presenter Charles Rangeley-Wilson goes to India in search of the mighty mahseer fish. The first proper day of fishing passes without success and as the night starts to fall Rangeley-Wilson comments that:
‘The bite, or the take, might come at any time or it might not come at all’.
This quote reminds me of the importance of patience in trading, the idea that a good trade may not present itself in a long time. It is important to look for opportunity, but if opportunity cannot be found it should not be forced simply because of my presence. I need to bear this in mind.
