Treasure Island

Travel Haiku - Angling at Black Hills (South Dakota)

Black HIlls water
the fish too
enjoying a ride

Black Hills
torn between going for the fish
or the landscape

Black Hills throws
two hooks at me
fish and landscape

Black Hills
killing two birds with a stone
one day i fish, the other i trek

For the best trout fishing in the Black Hills area, take the locals' advice and head to Rapid, Castle, Spring, or Spearfish Creek. Fish among herds of buffalo at French Creek in Custer State Park or enjoy the idyllic scenery of the popular Sylvan Lake. No need to rush; fly-fishing season in the Black Hills lasts through fall and, for the dedicated, some fast-flowing and spring-fed creeks offer opportunities for fishing through winter

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
