The little fish are back
by JJ Mathes
The creek where I fished for micros this summer washed out when we received 2-inches of rain in a couple of hours. This morning I tied two #28 flies and went back to the creek, the little fish are returning.
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653
"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.
