    After buying my license and permits
    I found myself poorer than hermits
    My wallet, now hollow
    Could barely them swallow
    Now storing all these is the shits

    Up and until the "water is freezing my balls" I thought this was about Ira as he's a bit boisterous when he's into trout. He doesn't comment on water temps though.

    Tex had longed to visit Seattle
    Dreamt of Salmon and epic battle
    But guided past pens
    Cried "This makes no sense
    It feels like I'm fishing for cattle."

    A barista from Tukwila
    Went fishing with only a pilla
    She said "Why so glum?"
    As she fondled her Chum
    "I'm a hooker but never a killa"

    Great thread!

    Here's one for those of you who, like me, can't help but chuckle when you pass by some of the places on the West End and read the signs:

    I went to a place called LaPush
    In search of some good-lookin' tush
    When none worthy did show
    I headed straight to a Hoh
    To Humptulips and Duckabush

    Not sure what it means, but I'm pretty sure it's naughty.... I wanted to work in Tillicum, but I couldn't find enough rhymes in the spirit of the theme.

    OK

    I met an old woman in Pysht
    Who invited me in from the mist
    She wanted a silly sum
    To play with me Tillicum
    Twas more fun than I had wished

    (fixed it)

    Two friends were out fishing one day
    "Let 'em live" I heard one say
    Then right in his route
    A wolf eating a trout
    He took aim and blew it away

    The above post was inspired by other threads and in no way represents an opinion one way or the other on the issue. Opinions require several related thoughts strung together which is beyond my ability or desire. This is not a hijack attempt. For some reason I find using contentious issues as themes entertaining.

    There once was a gent who chased trout
    As he got older, of course, he got stout
    He became an ardent crusader
    For a new type of wader
    For those not moving up, but moving out!

    This is in no way a reflection of the author..

    He found his new rod so appealing
    He just had to try out the feeling
    He assembled it quick
    Gave the rod a deft flick
    'Til the tip met the fan on the ceiling.

    This in every way is a reflection of me . . . damn it!

    The river could not have looked better
    He shook putting his rod together
    Quickly closed up his rig
    When it snapped like a twig
    Now a Sag, for it broke at the last letter


    Jim reminded me of a moment of my own.

    Hmmm this is interesting
    Fly fishing is like a wild fling
    That becomes a steady
    Speaking of...I'm ready
    To go do my thing
