Angling

Once upon a time
We scoured the sea for some sport
Fishing seems good fun

None during the day
Frustrating to say the least
Angling is pure luck

Change for the better
Still of nights and dawn were bites
The best saved for last

  4. That is quite the catch that you were able to fetch. True the best is saved for last and it never comes too fast.

  7. Seriously big one, Hank! This photo makes me think of my father, who was a writer as well as a dedicated sport fisherman.
    All the best for the coming year, my friend!

  18. Hank, loved this. The title, "Angling," was quite literal but could serve for a number of metaphors. A nice look back at simpler days! Peace, Amy
