Gone Fishing…into the Great Beyond

Humans have been fishing for more than 40,000 years, and using fishing hooks for at least 22,000 years (read more here).  Now we know the notion of fishing in the afterlife – or needing to be able to fish to get into the Great Beyond – has been around for a long time, too.  A recent discovery found fish hooks included in a 12,000 year old burial (read about it here).  I’ve always told my fishing buddies that, despite dragging along boxes and boxes of lures, we probably only need about six lures each per trip.  The fishing trip into the Great Beyond is a long one…I doubt I’ll be able to limit myself to six.
