I learned of C.A.S.T. for Kids from my fishing friend named Morgan. My appeal to you directly regards the event, a morning of city fishing, to be held  on Sunday, September 18 at Harlem Meer in Central Park.

 

My reasons are founded on several strong personal connections:

 

1) My wife’s twin brother, Louis, is a special needs citizen.

2) I am the author and illustrator of two books on fly fishing. The second, Small Fry: The Lure of the Little, includes a chapter on Harlem Meer as well as fly fishing with younger anglers.

3) I work part-time at Urban Angler, Ltd. on 5th Avenue and have independently guided several clients along The Meer, so I know the lake and how to fish there well.

4) I maintain an ongoing blog on tenkara, a simple form of Japanese fly fishing, great for Harlem Meer, which requires only rod, line, and fly. Physically challenged anglers have found the more simple style to be a godsend that allows them to keep fishing despite challenged limbs.

 

I’ll be there. Will you?

14th November, 2015 . . .
 
for Albert Camus
 
War in Europe, again.
How ironic
And how parallel
 
To continental
Historical cycles
This conflict has arisen
 
To Whenever,
To Wherever,
Perpetual war cataclysm.
 
We people are a species
Stuck rocking
On our own rodent wheel,
 
Rolling
Rock of our own
Rolling.

Hielo Grueso

The sign beside this Central Park pond read “Thin Ice” – Hielo Fino en español – and that was on Super Bowl Sunday, the one warm, as in fifty-degree, day during the entire month of February. The NFL did dodge a bullet and scored a great success in the New York metro area. For other sports fans, such as those who fly fish with tenkara equipment, this month has been not so much a disappointment as an extended test is patience.

But wait! Yes, wait, indeed: more snow is predicted over the first days of March, which shall be arriving like a lion.

That sign should now read “Thick Ice” – Hielo Grueso!
