Sitting on a log while the sun starts to rise
He watches the river trying to read it.
With flyrod in hand, he gives me some pointers,
almost 80 years of knowledge under his belt.
His shaky hands try to tie on a fly,
his eye magnification there to help him.
Out on the water he casts out his line,
wiping the backing he created familiar to most anglers.
His face is a little distorted due to an earlier stroke,
but he is healthy and going on strong.
Out of the water he drives his little red Suzuki moped.
Back at his white Winnebago he goes to bed,
He has to go to NY tomorrow but he will be back soon. ~ Cole Martin
