Possible Water

December 31, 2007

“…like the snow-fall in the river,
a moment white, then melts forever.”
-Robert Burns, Tam o’Shanter

Two potentially great steelhead drifts, both on the other side of the river. Can’t wade across; water’s too deep and fast. Can’t cast that far. Well, I can cast that far, but it wouldn’t drift right. Can’t swim–it’s important to stay dry and warm in this weather. There’s always the Thorne River bridge. But the hike back through the brush would take all day. Fishing all night won’t track well at home.

But look at the water. There’s got to be a way.

Oh yes.

The only way.

Happy 2nd birthday, TMF.
