My husband would love this one Tom! He is an inveterate fisherman. On the fisherman's fanatics scale of one to ten - he is a twelve! So happy to see this creative take of spring on the winners list! Well done. Over Fork Over!

Isn't it amazing how bears fish -- without the aid of any equipment whatsoever?! Never thought about it 'til that picture woke me up. ~ Half-Asleep

A striking portrait you've painted, Tom. Your haiku is wonderful. I wouldn't want to be in the sights of the just-waking bear.. I suppose the salmon feel the same way. Best wishes for a win, my friend.. ~Susan

I can clearly visualize your poem, Tom, even had no picture been attached. I can also hear the bear's tummy rumbling....must be so hungry after hibernation! ~ Sending happy & blessed Easter wishes your way, my friend. // paul
