Winterstrike

  1. boy with frogs in pockets

Hip deep in the stream and .... Fish On!! A quiet time for the intrepid caster of flies --Winter, snow, undisturbed fish!

I prepared this piece for display for a fly-fishing tourney. The interaction of the fisherman to the hooked fish results in a modified "contra-posto", the articulation of the slightly rotated body. When a good fish is hooked in this fashion there is arching in more than the pole. The place, the feel, the possibilities, all work to bring us back again and again to the throb of a rod under the strain of a good fish in the current.
