I pray that I may live to fish, until my dying day,
And when it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray,
When in the Lord's great landing net I am lying fast asleep,
That in His mercy He wil say, "He's good enough to keep."

I thought the fishermans prayer went like this:

Lord, suffer me to catch a fish,
so large that even I,
when speaking of it afterwards,
may have no need to lie!

But I also like your version...

or what about this one I found:

Our Father above the water.
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy rain will come thy rivers runOn Earth as they do in heaven.
Give us this day our daily fishand forgive our excess limit.
As we forgive those who set the limit.
Lead us not into rough water.
Deliver us at the end of season.

Yours is the river the ocean and the glory

Forever and ever, amen.
