Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and, he turns into a dry-fly catch-and-release angling fanatic up to his liver in icy water wearing ridiculous waders and an absurd hat, pestering trout with three-pound test line on a thousand-dollar graphite rod, and going on endlessly about Royal Coachman lures that he tied himself using muskrat fur and partridge ...

ALWAYS QUITE NICE to see your words in print, as in A Fish Ate My Homework, a primer on fly-fishing by Rick Robinson and Wade Dehate. My contribution is a brief remembrance titled "The Day it Rained Fish," one of the strangest of fish stories in that every word is true. Ask my ever-truthful wife, Elaine, who witnessed the event.
