SO GOOD WITH MY ROD I MAKE FISH COME

I used to work out on an island called Martha's Vineyard. I ran a pizza oven, I caddied, I worked on a fishing boat, and life is very easy out there. It's a vacation lifestyle all the time.

All those authors there, most of whom of course I've never met. That's the poetry side, that's the prose side, that's the fishing and miscellaneous behind me. You get an affection for books that you've enjoyed.

You must lose a fly to catch a trout. ~George Herbert

I'm a Hemingway fan, so in a manner of speaking, I've been fishing with him already. But man, would I love to board Pilar in Key West and head south until we have a day-long battle with a tarpon, haul that bad boy up, then celebrate by telling lies over rum on a Cuban terrace.

To him, all good things—trout as well as eternal salvation—come by grace and grace comes by art and art does not come easy. ~Norman Maclean (author, A River Runs Through It)

[ SO GOOD WITH MY ROD I MAKE FISH COME ].

Hunting, fishing, drawing, and music occupied my every moment. Cares I knew not, and cared naught about them.

Usually halfway through a book I have a serious depression, so I go on safari on my ranch in South Africa, or fishing off my island in the Seychelles. When I come back and re-read it, I think: 'What was all that about, Smith? It's fine, just get on with it.'

Fish or cut bait...!

HAVE ROD WILL USE IT
