corpulent golden carp
finning in the mud
Ill give you a try
retie my leader
look again and
adjust my fly
loop unfurls
cast is true
fly sinks into
the milky blue
the hook is set
the rod bends long
the fish takes off
like a train from
a johnny cash song
I worried now
how this fish is tracking
a few more feet and
she will be in the backing
pulled down the pool
like the old man in the sea
out in his dingy
the line peels off
my...um.. reel thingy
finally tired
finning on her side
a bit of carpe carp
and the prize is mine...

Truly a poet.

Anyone else think it is weird that every other fish in the river has some sort of camouflage or translucence so that they can hide in plain site, but carp don't even try? They are the most obliviously obvious fish.

A very well thought out and linguistically composed and poetically pronunciated ode to an over grown goldfish ! Well done, sir...and nice carp too!

Nymph drifts in current
Carp is waiting motionless
Strong pull on tight line
