Directions to My Secret Trout Spot
But a few times per week, I run into a bona fide trout angler. And they want to know it all. "Ooh. That river. Which fork? Above the bridge? Where do you park? Are you talking the third pool or the fourth pool? What flies you throwin'? Where ya buy 'em?" And of course, I waver between telling them useless, ambiguous information aaaaaaaaaaaaand.....flat out lying and saying I was somewhere else. Heck no, I won't tell you where I keep catching fish! Not unless we fish there together!
But I just can't fight it any more, and so here are the directions to my favorite trout fishing spot.
Go north until the air begins to reek of kettle chips, Ben Rouethlisboerguer and the Amish.
Turn left at the frog.
Turn right at The Rock. You know, "The Rock!"
Well, now you do! Finally, go under the Icy Troll Bridge!
And you're there!!!! Good luck fishing "my" little spot!
