I was standing in water leagues deep, somehow finding a rooting right below the surface. I could stand but I could also move around and swim, it was beautiful, liberating. The donor of my Y chromosome was in a boat nearby, as was his partner. I was swinging a line around with a small yellow sphere and hook on the end that was meant to catch fish. As I swung it around like a fly-fisherman, the line became tangled, I became enmeshed in it. A voice from the boat laughed, and asked something like, "after all this, you're still having problems with your line?"... He motioned to come help me untangle my line and go back to fishing, which immediately soothed the tension and facilitated becoming untangled. I was reminded of wisdom in simplicity, even when swimming trying to stand up straight in the murky depths of the subconscious.
To see a line in your dream, symbolizes duality, limits, boundaries and rules. It also relates to movement or non-movement. To dream that you are crossing a line, suggests that you are overstepping your boundaries or that you are moving beyond the limits in some area of your life.
To see a line of people or objects, indicates that you need to be more aware of some situation or relationship.
To dream that you are standing in line, represents your need for patience. You need to learn to wait for something and not always have it right away.

‘The path of the Grail was marked by a number of miracles; one of
the brothers was called Brous and was also known as “the rich fisherman” because he had succeeded in catching a fish with which he had satisfied the hunger
of all round him. Peter is called “the fisher of men” and the fish becomes a symbol
of Christ.’ This fragment of legend, taken from Waldemar Vedel, affords a clear
explanation of the mystic sense of fishing and the fisherman, a sense which has
been corroborated by all students of mythology and anthropology, Schneider
among them. Fishing amounts to extracting the unconscious elements from deeplying sources—the ‘elusive treasure’ of legend, or, in other words, wisdom. To
fish for souls is quite simply a matter of knowing how to fish in the soul. The fish
is a mystic and psychic animal that lives in water (and water is symbolic of
dissolution and, at the same time, of renovation and regeneration). The fisherman
is able—like the doctor—to work upon the very sources of life because of his
knowledge of these founts. This is how it comes about that Parsifal meets the
King of the Grail as a fisherman.
To dream that you are fishing, indicates that you are confronting and bringing your repressed emotions to the surface. In particular, to dream that you are ice fishing, suggests that you are breaking through a hardened emotional barrier and confronting difficult feelings from your unconscious. Alternatively, it represents your need for leisure and relaxation.
Consider the common phrase "fishing for compliments". Perhaps you are looking for attention.

To dream that you are in or see a boat, signifies your ability to cope with and express your emotions. Pay particular attention to the condition and state of the waters, whether it is calm or violent, clear or murky, etc. Are you "smooth sailing"? Alternatively, you may be ready to confront your unconscious and unknown aspects of yourself. The dream could be telling you not to rock the boat and to stay out of harm's way.
To dream that you are trying to jump off a boat, suggests that you want to confront those difficult emotions and approach your problems head on.
Boat signals forecast bright prospects, if upon clear water. If the water is unsettled and turbulent, cares and unhappy changes threaten the dreamer. If with a gay party you board a boat without an accident, many favors will be showered upon you. Unlucky the dreamer who falls overboard while sailing upon stormy waters.
To sail in a boat or ship on smooth waters is lucky. On rough waters, it is unlucky. To
fall into water indicates great peril.

Alternatively, you may be ready to confront your unconscious and unknown aspects of yourself. Dreaming that you are trying to jump off a boat, suggests that you want to dive directly in and confront those difficult emotions and approach your problems head on.
As mentioned in all relevant dream symbols, bodies of water represent your unconscious, your emotions and your accumulated soul experiences. Depending on the content of the dream, several different interpretations could be made. The boat in your dream could represent you and the manner you navigate through your emotions. It could symbolize the voyage of your life, an adventure and exploration of your unconscious, or a connection to the people in your dream by pointing out something that all of you have in common ("in the same boat"). When interpreting this dream, consider the kind of voyage and the type of boat. Superstition-based dream interpretation books say that if the voyage is calm, you should go forward with your plans. However, if it is a very stormy voyage, get ready for an emotional upset (or challenge), and if the boat is sinking, be prepared for a hidden danger.
To catch something in your dream, suggests that you need to incorporate something into your life. Consider the object you are trying to catch and look up its meaning. If you are trying to catch a ball, then it indicates that you want to feel whole or you need to be more well-rounded. If you catch a fish, then it suggests that you need to be more spiritual.
To dream that you are playing catch, signifies your carefree attitude. You are enjoying life. Consider who you are playing catch with. If you are playing catch with mother or father, then it represents your bond and closeness to them.
The dream may also be a metaphor to indicate something that is "catchy" or contagious.
To dream you are possessed of wisdom, signifies your spirit will be brave under trying circumstances, and you will be able to overcome these trials and rise to prosperous living. If you think you lack wisdom, it implies you are wasting your native talents.
