Read to me :
In New England, many professional fishermen will follow a customary routine before leaving port in the morning. They will insert a coin into a cork and set if afloat as offering, hoping that this will help them secure a good catch at sea. In other parts of America, fishermen make it a point to return the first fish they catch back to the sea in order for their luck to continue. Every fish counts in the South. Therefore, the first fish is hung from a tree. Some fishermen will spit on the bait in the hope to get lucky. Most consider it unlucky to reveal the number of fish they have caught if someone asks them for the number of fish caught. Many also believe that if you change poles during a day of fishing, bad luck will follow.
