A Man, A Canoe, and a Dream

Upon the placid pond With nature, a strengthening bond Of these moments, he is so fond A man, a canoe, and a dream Some tackle, a reel, and a pole Equipped with a motor to troll Searching the old fishing hole A man, a canoe, and a dream He waits for the largemouth to strike A Pickrel, , perch, or a pike He's yet to find one he dislikes A man, a canoe, and a dream Each moment his confidence grows And deep in his heart, he knows He could fish along side of the pros A man, a canoe, and a dream

I think you could fish "along side of the pros", Joe. You should write to them and tell them you could bring them to your fishing spot? I'm sure they'd love to tag along? Do you eat pike? I don't think they're so very far from the gar family? Best to you, Mikki
