Re: Most Memorable Fish of 2012
I apologize for not having a picture, I don't take many of the fish I catch. The most memorable this year was an 11" Cutt. I was fishing a new very small stream with a tiny dry caddis. It took at the confluence created by three rocks in a spot I could jump across.
The leaves on the trees were rustling in the light breeze that kept us cool and there was that perfect feeling in the day. When it took my fly I was almost reluctant to spoil the moment but it was a jewel of a fish and actually made my day that much better.
Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.
