  • Surface Of The Water
    285 words
    At one time or another we have all seen the image of a lone fisherman, in a pair of waders, standing in the middle of a shallow body of water. The sun is setting in the background and the surface of the water looks as smooth as glass. The fisherman slowly and gracefully lifts his rod from the water and in several fluid motions he commands the line to dance about his head. Then with one last forward arc, his arm and fishing rod working as one, the line rolls out in a straight line in front of him...
  • Very Old Fishing Hook
    2,188 words
    Fishing Fishing, or angling, is the sport of trying to catch fish with a rod, reel, line and baited hooks. The sport goes back thousands of years, and it appears that fishing techniques were already quite advanced at a very early date. In the Stone Age, hooks made of both bone and stone were used to catch fish, but spearing, a more primitive method, was probably just as common. An engraving from an ancient Egyptian tomb shows that all four methods of fishing-that is, with spears, nets, rods, and...
  • Huge Fish And Things
    504 words
    Destiny Is Not Always Easy Sometimes the things we are meant to be, aren't the things that are easiest for us. In Old Man and the Sea this becomes very true for Santiago. Fishing is extremely hard for him, lines cutting his hands, countless hours waiting for a fish to jump. He was born to do this, it is his destiny, and it's not easy. He shows this when he deals with many forms of nature, such as the sea, enormous fish, and countless things trying to take the fish away. The sea is a very importa...
  • Speed Of The Rod
    354 words
    The Physics of Fly-fishin " What does it take to launch an ultra-light fishing line over 200 feet? A little physics and a lot of feel for the fishing rod, that's what. The trick to doing good is to have the thinner, end of the line, land on the water first then the fly. The end of the line cushions the fly, having the effect that a fly is landing on the water, not a piece of nylon string. This may sound easy, but it's a lot harder than it seems. Just getting it to go that far is like 'pitching a...
  • Gus And Eddy Exchange Names
    1,489 words
    Eddy Eddy changes Gus in three different ways: when she directly interacts with him, by her absence and by her reappearance. On their first encounter with one another Gus is compelled by her differences in dress, techniques and gear. After she leaves, Gus feels a "need" to fulfill his empty life. Finally when she shows back up in his life, Gus then has everything he could ever ask for: a beautiful woman who loves to fish, just like him. Page 151: "A barefoot girl. A full-grown one. One who wore ...
  • Visual Poem The Fish
    905 words
    The Fishs Image With fewer than fifty published poems Elizabeth Bishop is not one of the most prominent poets of our time. She is however well known for her use of imagery and her ability to convey the narrators emotions to the reader. In her vividly visual poem The Fish, the reader is exposed to a story wherein the use of language not only draws the reader into the story but causes the images to transcend the written work. In the poem, Bishop makes use of numerous literary devices such as simil...
  • Fly Rod
    671 words
    Fly-fishing is challenging and inspiring. It draws anglers to wild and beautiful rivers in search of trout and salmon that are equally wild and beautiful (Davis 1). To most people the sound of a fish taking string is an annoying noise. To a fly fisherman, it is music. The sport of fly fishing has been around for many years, and is very relaxing. The fly rod use to be made of bamboo and sometimes it is still used. A rod has to bend and work equally well in any direction-up, down, sideways, across...
  • Easiest Cast On A Fly Line
    799 words
    There are six main elements of fly fishing; a fly rod (usually around 9 feet long), a fly reel (a round shaped real with a 1: 1 relative ratio), a fly line (around 90 feet long), fly lining backing (fills up the reel and is spare line in case the fish takes a long run), a tippet to tie to the front end of the fly line so it does not scare the fish (around 9 feet of clear line), and a few flies (lures made from winding furs, feathers, glitter and various other things around a hook). Picking the "...
