I pray that I may live to fish
Until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord's great landing net
And peacefully asleep
That in His mercy I be judged
Big enough to keep.



I held my breath as I cast,
Releasing it as the bait hit the water.
I waited with anticipation,
For nothing else at the moment mattered.

The line tightened upon the water,
As the current pulled it downstream.
To catch a solitary fish today
Was my only dream.

I felt a tug, and then another...
I waited for the perfect time,
To set my hook and catch my prize.
The moment was sublime.

The barbel fought with all her might
To free herself from my line,
But I was determined and held my rod high.
This long awaited moment mine.

My heart was racing, I grinned with pride
As I watched the big girl fight.
She lept from the water, a flash of gold
As try to escape she might.

I smiled as I lifted my lady fair
And admired her natural beauty.
I then returned her to the sea,

For this,

It is my duty.
