Just alittle poem to remember next time the big one gets away I walk up to the river and in it I peer. So soothing is the water and crystal clear. A slight wind from the west awakens the trees. I watch as they dance in this sweet cool breeze. Tired is the sun as it sinks in the sky. Little time left so my best I must try. I reach back with my arm then bring it down like a hammer. Releasing my line, in the most graceful of manner. Through the air my lure soars, what seems like a mile. Evoking from me, a most pleasurable smile. A perfect cast, a wonderful shot. I see my bait slip flawlessly into the best of spots. Slowly I reel taking in slack. Just then an explosion, a vicious attack. Hard I pull back. Then from nowhere a snap. The fish was gone to travel on. An outing on the bank all gone wrong. A 7 Dollar lure still in his lip. I hang my head low holding my rod at my hip. He got lucky this time, but not the next trip.
