Wishful Fishing

Time fishing is not spent....Its invested!
Its not about the catchin...Its about the fishin!


I took a cast to catch a fish,
but had no luck so I made a wish.
I wished a fish would hit my jig,
then smoke my drag ‘cause it was big.
Then jump and charge and burn again
and fight real hard until the end.
But I didn't get a single hit,
and I wasn't bothered,
not one bit.
Because what a nice day it was to fish,
and I’ll be back to catch my wish!

Fishing, for me, is more of a release, a communion with nature, a fun challenge.
I am always thankful for the time I spend, often steal.
Whether its just a few roadside casts or marathon trip, its all good.
And.... I know that no matter what, there'll be a next time!

Thank you!
Steal a few minutes for yourself every day. If you don't fish, just go sit by some water or take a walk. Whatever floats your boat!
Thanks again!
Only the best,

Hey Guys,
Thank you for reading, sharing and following!
I am really just getting started at this, so you all are very important to me and my family.
Our life has really been changed since our accident. Thank you again!
I have a compilation of fishing related pieces in an eBook on amazon called “Fast Casts” for $2.99
It is also set uo as a “Share” file.
It was our first. I will be rereleasing a newer version as soon as I can with more pieces, on more sites and better format & editing.
I’d also love to work with artists and maybe even photographers to enhance things.
If you get it, please give a review and share.
It is a huge help to us!
And…It will help me write more!
I eventually want to provide audio files.
Thanks again!!!
Only the best,
