"the little gem"


they are fishers now
as their father
grand-father
as far back as we remember


each casting
wadding
savoring
embracing
earth


hand-made
bamboo
boy's initials proudly displayed


they check balance
eye-ball for straight
then they cast
how about the knot
"do you want me to retie that for you?"


the action is slow
appreciative chuckles


they are friends
fishers
family
good men





























his wife said...
"i will never say yes to a motorcycle
but, fishing...it's good"
he adores her
she supports him
they are happy





David Clark Carter
initials of son
now man

I love your family traditions.
These rituals and things that bind you tight.
I learn from you, thank you.
