The Circle of Life -- Sacrifice

Tackle box, fishing poles, radio, a good book to read
In a quite little alcove , the back outskirt of Lake Mead
The desert sun burning the sky, I’m comfortable in the shadow
I see the shad chumming toward the shore, my bait a live minnow
Suddenly, down the shoreline, I see the water, rapidly rippling my way

A hundred strong with  a school of fifty tagging along : the bass kicked …
                              I wonder Are The TROUT biting??

Inspired by Amy Green’s Contest : : I saw with my own Eyes
 July 8, 1979 --  10:50 A.M. Lake Mead , Henderson Nevada
