“obsessed by their elusiveness/what’s out there/what you can yank in with a careful line” – Florence Kassen Mayers, “Fishing Blues”

She pulls on her long waterproof waders as though she were slipping into the music of a belly flop.  The hooks and carefully tied flies are in the tackle box, the hot coffee in the steel thermos, her waterproof billed cap tight on her head.  It’s time to feel the run of the river, the blue purpose of steelhead, the green intelligence of fishy eyes.
