    Default THE BOY ON THE BANK - Whipfinish - Jun 6, 2018

    THE BOY ON THE BANK

    The boy sat intently observing from his perch on the stream bank above, like a miniature gargoyle watching all that was upon the stream. The object of his attention was an elderly fisherman with what appeared in the mind?s-eye of the boy to be a magic wand, as he laid out long graceful loops with a cast that looked nearly impossible. The pale blue line made no sound, except for the occasional ?clicking? of the reel as the man would appear to pull more line off of his reel, extending his casting loop even further. He watched on as the line would lay itself out effortlessly and the man would then stand motionless as only his head and rod tip would follow the line on the water.

    Great article.... As a kid I found a cheap bamboo fly rod in our garage back corner closet that was crammed with fishing stuff when I was exploring one rainy day. I also often practiced casting in the snow in Michigan. That rod sure changed how I spend most of my outdoor time

    Fine story!! I would imagine many of us have similar experience. I know I did and it is still fresh in my memory.
