Alex on poppers

Even though there are still a bunch of steelhead to be caught and trout fishing is just heating up, the warm weather yesterday and Alex’s post has me thinking smallmouth. And it has me thinking about fishing in general, about the metaphysics of time and the river, about how it’s a lot to ask of a fish to be where its supposed to be.

“Other times I don’t and the popper just floats, over and over through the same ripples and the same dancing sunlight through the same three of four seconds of river. Three or four seconds is not a lot of river when you think about it. It would be asking quite a bit for a willing fish to reside in those seconds.”
