A Straw Hat & Basket

A straw hat and basket

with a straw hat and basket
i head for the river
with my fly rod & net
no waders, no fret

a basket of dries
spool of light tippet
the river so clear
i don't dare draw near

the beetle plops on the surface
i wait patiently on the ready
i know their out there
but where

a swirl to the surface
quick with my wrist
she fights her best
on my 7x test

a tan fluttering caddis i tie on
skittering across the water
a slap at the tan
a brook to hand

than at dusk
blue quills fly about
a #20 parachute i select
boy, was i correct!!
