This Is No Ordinary Love

I don't think Sade had fishing in mind when she sang those words, but when I found myself braving the triple digits in an oven of a tail water on Sunday, casting at gar and drum, the lyric kept creeping into the back of my head...

My first gar! Released to swim for another day.

Not bad for my first real triumph of the day: 5:15am I leave Tyler for Fork, I fish around the marina, find some bowfin, get a couple strikes but never manage to land one. Finally I harass them enough and they depart for deeper water. Needless to say I was disappointed.

All in all a great weekend!
