A young man fly fishes for rainbow and brown trout in northern Vermont.

Fishing on the Barton River 1947
by Henry Burt Stevens

River bottomed farm land
ox-bowed fudge colored flow
banks caving in as
strong summer rains cut deeper curves.

Walking pussy footed
flyfishing the ripples
i now and then make catch
landing a silver steelhead.

The road a half mile away
can be heard, not loud
the gurgle from a tipped in tree
i pop a wild cucumber

The sun has dipped, the air chills
a farmer turns off his put-put engine
water drips from my line as i reel in
walking home in darkness

eating fresh picked clover blossoms.

Yes this does remind you of fishing on any river. I did not learn to fly fish until about five years ago.

Wonderful nostalgic write, Henry - reminded me of some of my younger days - chasing those elusive trout.
