Summary: Relaxation can provide time for reflection. This paper illustrates how relaxation, in the form of fishing, led to reflection involving mathematics and technology  in particular, the calculator technology fostered by Bert Waits and Frank Demana, Ohio's internationallyrecognized leaders in the field.
