Idioms from Numbers

For some people, fishing is so enjoyable that it puts them in seventh heaven. For others,  fishing is a good time to relax and catch forty winks. I'm of two minds about it. At first sight, fishing seems like fun. But, on second thought, I just don't like to handle a fish when I catch it. To many people who like ishing, it's second nature to look a a river or a lake and know where the fish ae. They have a sixth sense that helps them do this. Soon they're catching fish, while I'm still trying to put the worm on the hook.

in seventh heaven - extremely happy
forty winks - a short sleep, a nap
of two minds - having trouble making a decision
at first sight - after a quick look, before realy thinking about one's feeling about something
on second thought - changing one's mind after thinking more about something
second nature - easy and natural to someone
sixth sense - a special feeling for something, or a special understanding of things
