David Slew the Giant

padre island jetties fly fishing with David

I hurried out to the Jetties after fulfilling my family photo obligations and as the sun was falling fast across the Laguna Madre. I knew the Tarpon were there, and no illusion, because I had seen them a couple of days before – 


Later, I was trying to think of a way to make sense of the rivalry between fishermen, like David, and these giant silver fish. “Then David put his hand in his bag and pulled out a stone: and he slung it …” – I Samuel 17:49 .


* John Gierach (paraphrasing) – If you go twenty percent further than everyone else on the water, you get away from eighty percent of the people.
