Where could we fish like our fathers did, where a catch was worty of film?

I could tell the stories of fishing glories

which most would instantly tell.

Truth is the fishing is more like wishing

to make a catch in a well.

Dropping dimes on hooks and lines

would bother me not at all

if fishing spots produced not,

only size extra small.

Sadly, many once pristine fishing holes are now 'fished out' and sometimes in our modern world today, even paved over. The Big Ones truly have gotten away from us.

Ego's are the only things large in fishing.

Truth is the fishing
is more like wishing

sometimes what we catch in life only appears large to us ...
