Plus, it usually doesn't take any luck to catch sheep. At least not good luck, anyway. If you've got to rely on good luck and superstitions to catch sheep, you may want to take up golf. BTW, I am not bagging on sheep. I enjoy catching the big ones, as they put up a heck of a fight and have saved many days when we just wanted something to bite. That said, they aren't exactly the most challenging fish to catch.
