WritePhoto # Fisherman

Welcome to the weekly #writephoto prompt!

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

I hope the elusive muse visits you and grants a great post to go with this prompt. Happy Fishing!

The Fisherman – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a long stretch of river with a bank at both sides. A Fisherman is present in the foreground his line cast out across the water.


Fishing was a patient pastime.

Casting the line and then waiting for however long it took for the fish to take the bait.

Josh sat there and as he waited, his mind went back many years, when his father showed him how to cast a line for the first time.

You have to be very quiet Josh. Noisy boys scare away the fish”, he had said. And Josh learned to be very quiet. That’s why whenever he went fishing, he’d always caught more than his friends.

Now he was eager to teach his child how to fish just like his father had. Just today his wife had told him the good news.

  1. This made me smile….remembering my Dad teaching me to fish, teaching life lessons as well as fishing, patience, watching, observing the beauty of nature as he slowly rowed the boat on the lake just as the sun would rise (because that’s when the fish bite best).

  2. Excellent! I love the sentence, That’s why whenever he went fishing, he’d always caught more than his friends.” Heart warming and true. The quiet times reap some of the most precious moments. Great share Sadje. Thank you.
