a couple three weeks

it's been a couple three weeks now since i stepped myself into the wacky and sublime world of tenkara. i must say that it has been a really great ride so far. i've been cutting my teeth about a half-mile from my home, and somewhere between the lessons of patience and the festering blackberry brambles waiting to pop themselves from my hands, i've managed to learn a little bit and even caught a fishy or two. as the days get longer and the air warms, i wonder what the next couple three weeks will hold.

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
