I found this short poetry quote going through some of my Dad’s fishing binders where he kept all his reports and secret spots and I really liked it so here it is. I don’t know who wrote it so if anyone has heard it before let me know the author.
“The glowing lights of late afternoon, the scent of winter wood, the sound of water; each is complete in itself. They are pieces of a larger whole. Few elements of this whole we call nature bring us into more intimate contact with its beauty or with our wonder than the creature we call trout or the activity we call angling. To see the glow, to smell the wood, to hear the water – to feel the heft of a good fish is to be alive.”
