I’m on vacation! I will do a proper thank you and link up to everyone who participated last week when I return. But, until then, here is a new prompt!
Light filters through the cascading waves of shadows running down the high canyon walls. Shining fingers reaching down from the heavens to highlight the beauty of the world, you notice the warm spots of rock and water where the light touches and you smile. The constant hum and crash of the river at your feet adds the symphony accompaniment to the play being acted out for your enjoyment. Time slows and races with the rise and fall of the orchestra, and your heart follows along.
Stepping to the edge, you set your balance and brace your feet, then let the fly taste the air as you whip it once, twice, three times over your head. The line pulls against your finger as you release it and for a moment your world is reduced to the flight of the fly and the whine of the reel. As it splashes down, and you are pleased with its placement, the roar of the river rises back up to a near deafening volume, and you begin to coax the fish out of hiding with a delicate dance of pressure and movement.
A flash of silver deep within the rolling blue and white, as a trout breaks cover beneath the rocky bottom, and there is a small tug on the taught line…
I bet you’ll never guess where I am on my vacation! So, go on, how would you finish this story? Do you catch the fish? Does it get away? Is the fish not really a fish? Is it a werefish? Is it magical and will grant you wishes if you let it go? Be creative, have fun, happy writing!
