In A Rush

March 6, 2017

February 18, 2017

Spring, it seems, is in a rush this year and thus I headed to the Rush River with a buddy for a little trout fishing. Sixty degrees.  T-shirt weather for one spin fisher dude.

The action, like the weather was hot.  Little browns, 7-9″ inches.  Brought ten of them to hand and missed twice that many (a little rusty I guess). All on a woolly bugger.  My buddy caught a dozen or so, mostly on a red midge nymph.  Surprisingly, very minimal surface action.  Lots of fisherman, at least 4 or more cars at the three spots we visited.  Can’t blame a soul for wanting to get out on an amazing day like today.

Thaw

Barren fields, blank corn

a rivers soft bends and curves

thaw thy pen, thy soul

Sorry about the blurred photos.  Something smudged the camera lens.  Fish, rod, woolly bugger, and camera.  Two things too many for two hands.  The blurriness though gave me the idea for an “Imagist” poem, a style of poetry  that I recently read about in the Wall Street Journal of all places.

 

False Casts

Knee deep in the river, life

False casts, strikes, hopes and dreams, a blur

Every once in a while, magic.
