|Gorgeous Brown Trout Butch...Was this your first fish of the mountain adventure? Flyfishing has always been a fascination...from the sensory nature of the mountain streams to the art of tieing the flies and the craft of whipping the rod and still managing the pinpoint placement of the lure in anticipation of the catch. Ahhh... and the catch..He made that as varietal and colorful, not to mention elusive, as any pirates treasure as you have found. Be the treasure the fish, the surroundings, or the grace of the moment He grants you...you caught this fish with your Senryu!

|Indeed a gift from God, I think if we only take a moment to look we can find beauty in all of God's creatures. The fish is an excellent symbol of God's love and a reminder of how Jesus fed the multitude. A wonderful write my friend...I too see more than a fish, but am glad you had that chance to flyfish...it's a wonderful experience, I too enjoy fishing it's peaceful and is a great time to meditate. Enjoyed!

|A beautiful piece. I took my baby to look at all the fish in an aquarium the other day and was struck by how much personality was in each of their faces. Better for them to be in a river or the ocean though! Thanks for the lovely & well versed reminder, he/she is a beauty. Glad your dream came true.|

|Butch - You've created a Ku-perfect picture and photo of what it's all about. I never was a good one, but terrible eyesight, now, prevents my even wading into the water, and, perhaps, taking a slip-fall on a rock. I don't envy you, Thankful Fisherman, I cheer you on, and hope you can get back up in those swift streams again, soon. Thank you for a 'feel good' piece of writing. - Bill

|An almost spiritual look at fishing! Haiku is another good form for you. Yes, many gifts abound....and I consider your poetry to be one of them! Lydi**|
