Gone Fishin' Contest


Blog Posted:2/19/2014 8:36:00 AM
I started a new contest yesterday. You can see the details on the contest page. I've received one poem so far, and a very good poem at that. Sadly, it has nothing to do with fishing so I can't move it on. Gotta be about fishing people. And like I said on the contest page, if you don't have a good fishing story, make one up...or stretch the truth on one you DO have...fishing tales are meant to be stretched a bit...;)

OH! OH! You wound me up... And you know how my stories go... I'll give you a real whopper of a 'Gone Fishing" story... I dare you to place... or even print it! This should be cool! It should be good to tell while sitting around the camp fire!

So can it be figurative, like Jesus was a fisherman of men? That kind of thing?

I don't need to stretch my fishing tales, Boy. Heck, I've been fishing for several centuries now. There's nowhere I haven't fished, why, I've even fished on the moon. One memory that stands out for me at the moment, is when I was living with the Norse just off Baffin Island. They had travelled over from Greenland. This was around 1020AD, and I was still a whipper-snapper. Anyway, Thor Hammmerstein harpoons this sperm whale, has some trouble bringing it in(a land-fixed harpoon). He was always boasting about how strong he was, so I decided to show him up. I walk over, grap the line, give it a few wriggles, and use the sperm whale as bait to catch a blue whale. You should have seen Thor's face!

hey Chris I was on the same boat as Thor, he was useless with a harpoon....

Yeah, Baby! LOL! Nothing like fresh trout, pan fried over open flame. Gimme time, but I'm on that! I'm focused on my novel right now-- and will be for months to come. But I think you're contest has "baited" me into one more poem... (hardy har! HA!) Hugs to you, the Mrs and your wee ones. Cyndi
