Winners and losers

I have fished off and on my whole life and, except for a few baitfish, have never caught anything. That record holds. I’ve been going to a local spot a couple of times a week and have decided fishing is a lot like gambling: if I use this lucky bait; one more cast before I leave; that spot looks better. Still a loser or viewed another way, the fish are winners. But it is a beautiful spot and this week I appreciated its reflections.

I know there are fish in the pond because a few weeks ago, a man gave me five trout he caught there.

At least I made a new friend.

My new lucky lures arrive this week. How can I miss with “Trout Magnets”?
