when you go to fish

    ‘good anglers’ [good soul] /‘purest lake’ [good thoughts] /‘fine fish’ [the goal] /‘quench your hunger’…[contentment]

    I find a deep message …contemplative poem…not just fishing…[vide supra]

    I liked this poem a lot........nice line structure, nice use of metaphor. one must always choose a good friend, and that too from a good lot. You must keep to them, for they fill you with all joy... the message was very well conveyed. the poem was also short, which made it more good..since most thoughts come more power-packed and solid in short poems...great thought, well expressed...the fishing work was also felt and it lent a light feel to the poem..GREAT! !
