A New Normal Story

by Terry Farmer

As part of our isolation routine my wife and I walk our dog down by the river. Social distancing observed, we can get out and get a little exercise. There is a drainage ditch along the way full of 2-4" fish. My curiosity got the best of me so I put together a long rod, some 7x tippet, a split shot, an Owner tanago hook and a tiny bit of worm. Had fun! I believe these are Rio Grande Chubs.

I hope all you readers are well and having some fun in spite of our current situation. Be safe and God Bless.

Water, fish and a nice day are always good. It looks like my spring trout plans may morph into a local shiner survey.

"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.
