    Default CARRY ME AWAY - Native Waters - Dec 17, 2012

    CARRY ME AWAY
    The fly rod in my hand shimmered blackly; graphite iridescence, green guide wraps, Portuguese cork grip. A gold reel seemed almost gaudy against such understated charm.
    Around me, the creek was low, perhaps a quarter its flow last time I was here. But the water was cool and moved along at a good clip. My fly of choice, a small yellow popper with white legs, still rested in the chrome hook keeper near the rod's grip. I stood there on the edge of the creek and soaked in the sound of the water falling over a little ledge, the scents of the trees, the sun on the back of my neck, just cresting the tree tops.

    Wish I could carry you far enough that we could fish together.

    I guess we should have called this a Christmas present from Roger - so nice to have an article from him!

    Merry Christmas, everyone. I wish you good catching, of course, but I mostly wish you all solace and contentment on whatever what you find yourself upon.
    "And look at Elias Wonder. Yeah, take a gander at that buzzard. Forty years ago he was happy, generous, charitable, tall, dark and handsome. Then he took up the fly rod. Now consider him. Uglier than fresh road kill. Evil-eyed, cantankerous, sullen, mean. An anti-social misfit that causes a groundswell of spleen wherever he goes."
