Trout Fishing Adventure
(Guide: Marcello)
by Michael Escoubas

big water
rushing surging thrashing
cast the fly
splash! wham!
set! set! set!
set the hook
keep the fishís head down
keep tension on the line
if he runs
let him run
reel! reel! reel!
keep tension on the line
wear him down
wear him down
now bring him to the net
donít give him any slack
thatís it, thatís it,
bring him to the net—
heís in, heís in
hold him up
letís get a picture …
snap! snap! snap!
