The Fly That Had No Name

Guest ‘POET’: Michael Vorhis, author of ARCHANGEL suspense thriller, OPEN DISTANCE adventure thriller & more to come

The stream yielded nothing, four hours and half.
The sun and the wind now relentlessly high…
The classics, the Hare’s Ear, the Pheasant, the Wulff
Had all served up naught but a snag and a sigh.
Still I added more tippet, and opened to scrounge
In my fly box, some hero this river to tame…
And deep ‘tween a bugger and gnat, there I found
The old one–the fly that had never a name.
