[report]...between the [i]it was[/i] and the [i]tomorrow[/i]...

...is only a dream...

It's about as far west as one can get on our local body of water...

Just above the great estuary...on its' feeder creek,

Are the ruins of an ancient citadel,

Once populated by the water clan...

They traded goods,

With a nomadic clan of the plains,

Until...

The plains clan,

Wounded their Knees,

And could no longer make the pilgrimage...
[attachment=22]bird.jpg[/attachment]
The water clan became entrepreneurs,

In the jewelry market...

And the waterway...

An artery...

For "accidental" effluent discharge...

He (I) was wounded as well...unbelievably, coming up on fourteen years...

Not long ago I returned to the scene of the crime...the chair, where I waited as a sentinel of bone crushing hope, was still there...
[attachment=19]sentinelREDSM.jpg[/attachment]
And so now every spring finds me not so much in pursuit of the urgent push of migratory fish,

Rather...

A dream I once had...

So I walk...and search the hazy corners of somnambulant moments...

The past several months have been more about distraction than angling...

Making up some G@ngB@ang swap stickies...

Tying up some floss & fluff...

Cheers, friend. In search of good marks and good bread- a very similar path. And back in the dreams of my youth.

More for the season ahead. :cool

Damn. I had to stop 10 lines in because I realized that I was going to need to settle into this one. Let me break out the green and the brown and try that one again after the kids go to bed.

Ever railroad your kids into bed early on a Friday night so you can read a post?
