The Pond

The Pond

Pond glimmering
Ever shimmering

Glass breaks
Water wakes

Line cast
Ripples last

Dock creeks
Lore speaks

Man fought
Trout caught

Large fish
Main dish

Whale Of A Tale

“Benjamin Disraeli once said ‘There are three kinds of lies:

‘Lies, damned lies and statistics’.

An anonymous quote once said that 87% of statistics are made up.

Or as The angler’s prayer says:

Lord, suffer me to catch a fish,
So large that even I,
When talking of it afterwards,
May have no need to lie.

And finally an old saying “Is it that all anglers are liars or is it that all the liars fish?” ”

The Fisherman’s Craft

The Fisherman

In and out I watch you cast

Never wavering from the rhyme

Reeling in your hook at last

Nothing on the line

Wonder if you’ll get a fish

Or do you really care

Is it really the catch you wish

Or just the need for air
