We can plan a trip to the Adirondacks…
You say you’re aiming for flounder?
Not likely where we’re going.
We’re looking for trout!
Though Rachel Carson tell us “It’ll be Shad-Time Soon”.
We’ll make a stop at Mike’s Bait & Tackle,
We’ll use all the tricks we learned from the father of catch-and-release fly fishing, Lee Wulff.
We might run into Ernest Hemingway …
… or Sylvia and Edwin Beinecke.
But if we don’t land anything worth bragging about, we can try Rudyard Kipling’s advice on Dry-Cow Fishing.
After all, our motto is: “I Wouldn’t Take Tuesday Off if You’d Show Me a Fish that Would Bite on Weekends!”
