Sawhill is nice.
What a great word image! Beautiful!
do their parent's know they are doing that? I suppose they must've learned from someone :) Love the poem. Great structure.
Hehehe teenagers in the back of the theatre, ;)
Howard - That it is! And, right next to Walden to boot!Mike - Many thanks...and I always appreciate your comments! d-nash - I am pretty sure the parent's knew, and didn't like it. Every once in awhile a bigger bluegill would come through to disperse. ;) Aw heck, but maybe the parents were just jealous...parents should try making out in theatres a little more often "at their age"...Justin - You got it dude....talking to you! ;)
E - "...Parents should 'try'..." ?? Do or do not... There is no try! - Yoda.(even at my age).pa
Pa - Oh, I know what you and mom are up to. ;) I learn from you! pow! hehe
ahahaha what I think is that in Winter it's a great way to do other stuff than school, but in Summer it's just a waste of fishing time! Obsessed much?
Time to bust out some poppers and get those naughty bluegills on the end of my line. I love how your words paint such fantastic pictures. -stephanie
pa, he he he ;-)ma
We camped last summer down at Olive Creek and the whole laked echoed with the sound of fish kissing...well into the night. It was something much bigger then gluegill by the sound. Must of been Carp date night "2 for 1" at the theater that night
Stephanie - Thanks! And next time...poppers!sgb - Kissing sounds? Yeah, carp. Or, "2 for 1" date night in the Block Tent. hehehe. ;)
Justin - Keep obsessing about fish...
Hey...wanna go to the movies?
Anonymous - Yes! And I do believe you've already got my phone number...
I always wanted an underwater camera for pics like these. Just to get that "I can see you" point of view that fish have. Maybe ill try the large can with saran wrap and a rubber band. lol. Nice post!What fly are you using? I have been trying the old standby "horsefly" mostly cause thats whats eating me!
Alan - Underwater camera would be nice, but these were taken from above. The water was just incredibly clear and still. I was surprised they turned out! Let me know how the can/saran thing turns out though! hehe. I was using one of the streamers I've been tying up....there's a picture of some of them at the top right of the page. Oh and do I ever remember horseflies! Damn them!
Beautiful. ..and I'm sure the price you paid for admission was well worth it :-)
Sanders - Thank you! And yes, it was...would've even paid more *(something)! :)
Only until August, then catching tail as well as catching fish comes into the equation, hahahha.
Sawhill Ponds Theatre. I love that phrase, tells something about the author. Sometimes is just nice to sit and watch and listen.
Justin - if I see any girls your age, I'm going to tell them to run, quickly, the other way!John - Thanks. It was such a lovely place, and I did just stand there silently and take it all in. Didn't fish much, and enjoyed it.
Fish are an obsession, aren't they?? Hey, sure would love to meet you in August...Check out the Rocky Mountain Frenzy on my blog or Antlers and Gills...and let us know if you can come!
River Damsel - I'll check it out, and see what I can do! Also, thanks for stopping by for a read!
yeah erin! you need to come to RMF! You and the little guy Justin. Oh... And I had asparagus last night and this morning I had to turn the fan on to pee :/
Dustin - haha! Yes! Glad you're having fun with asparagus. ;) Will try to get to the RMF!
Wow! So many comments! You are addictive, Erin.Reading you always puts me in a good mood.
That's so interesting. Not enough people talk about this. Blue gills sipping the surface sounds exactly like someone making an exaggerated kissing noise. I was fishing a lake with huge gills in it and the sipping sounded like someone chewing loudly with too much gum in their mouths. It was insane. The things we hear and see while fishing are hard to explain, you have to experience it to understand. It's interesting though most bloggers have never met but we can relate to a lot of the things we share. The topics we discuss might never be discussed outside of the internet. That makes blogs a great resource.
Kev2380 - Their kissing was driving me batty until I figured out what it was. Seriously like an amphitheater of teenagers! Right on....these shared experiences are definitely what makes blogs so interesting...this interaction of people across time and place. Thanks. :)
