Trout Love…How Do I Love Thee

Elizabeth Barrett-Browning’s Sonnet 

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and Ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Look what a smarty pants you are becoming hanging around SwittersB & Fly Fishing 🙂


Humble Pie’s Southern Lifestyle Blog & Gumbo!!!

Humble Pie is a nice photography blog, but I noticed it is more and in particular I came upon a ‘recipe’ section. There was a piece on Gumbo. I love GumboI’d use the Humble Pie pic for Gumbo, but figured I should just point the way and let you see for yourself. Nice photography. Ya’ll tell him SwittersB sent ya. Ok that was bad.


Wagon Wheel Stopped Rollin’ Lush Green

Photography: I love photography. But, admittedly, I fall prey to the ‘Auto’ mode more often than not. So, I am not a true photographer concerned with f-stops and shutter speeds. I do experiment with it, but more with my macro work when photographing the fly patterns. So, I just snap and see (a new terminology and you can use it: S & S). I would prefer to take landscapes of scenic mountain ranges or meadows. For now my back yard was my meadow of sorts.

This old wagon wheel has leaned against this alder tree for at least sixteen years. It has never been treated, something I regret. So it sags ever so slightly, like I do, ever so slightly, as the years pass by. The lush green is the result of 14″ of rain the past few months (a record even for Portland) and I have been remiss in not getting out the vines that are encroaching upon the Iris, the Wheel and my wonderful clanging bell. The bell is situated where it only rings when the East wind howls down the Columbia River Gorge in the Winter. Right now it would never clang as the vines have their grip upon the bell’s clanger. I do need to get out there and cut things back a bit.
