It couldn’t have been more perfect.
A little cloudy;
Warm but not hot or muggy.
The river clear,
The current strong but not raging.
Outfitted with a new set of flies
and advice from the guy at Orvis,
I picked a sexy, sparkling one
And tied it on.
Someone forgot to tell the fish
Is there a God
In this most dystopian time?
Is it too much to ask that he
encourage a trout to take a nibble?
