Haiku...Urban Legends -- two intermittently occuring topics on this esteemed forum. Why not combine them??
What's this on mirror?
"WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF AIDS!"
One night stand of DEATH!!
It's strange to awaken
In a bathtub full of ice.
HEY - where's my kidney!?!
"Speed trap" I flash them
As a helpful motorist
Only to get shot!!
OK, folks, knock yourselves out!!
Every three years
we do so without fail though
he's forty-eight now
The hospital says
he recovered years ago
But what do they know
He is worse than I am. If he doesn't lose a fly by casting into the brush/willows/poison oak/wild grapes/? on the far bank every 12 casts, he is having a bad day! I have seen him replace 24 flies in a three to four hour castathon. Off course he will out fish me 5 to one! His theory, the flies/nymphs fall down into the river from the overhanging or nearby brush.
When the stripers have their next meal close to the bank and sometimes even jumping on the shore, he will cast right on the shore and bring the fly back. He hooked a 35# in about 8 inches of water. The fish knocked the wind out of itself trying to dive after my son set the hook. He cast the fly onto the shore and flipped it back into the pod of bait and stripers. At least three stripers went ripping after his fly for an easy lunch!
Take two aspirin
Quit thinking about Haiku
and go get a life.
A year ago the Friday after Thanksgiving, he and I caught and released 12 stripers in a little over 30 minutes in an area that had over 100 bait and hard ware chunkers! This 100 bait and gear chunkers caught zero fish before we got there and zero during the time we were catching them!
The dumb ones booed us. The smart ones asked to see what his flies looked like and what rods and lines we were using!
Ken Hanley is apparently getting ready to come out with a new book on how to use Spey rods to cast in the West Coast Surf with flies for Stripers and other ocean fish! People who have seen him and a couple of other famous flyfishers use their Spey Rods and flies can't believe their results!
Man yearns to fly
