    Pleasant Surprise

    THE RAIN:
    GENTLE AND SOFT
    Went To The River In P.J.'s
    caught fish
    -------
    .. Our second cup was interrupted by a knock on the door. The gray dawn and a spry young neighbor suggested a quick dash.
    .. We went. No socks, light poncho, small box, trusty rod, no donuts. Perfect preparation!
    .. No visitors at the gate: quick wave, onward. The Madison River glowed in the sparse dawn light. We beat the rain to Madison Junction, but not the bugs. They were awake and cavorting in the half light: diminutive diamonds above a mirror.
    .. The sparse hatch of 'littleuns' was just enough to wake up the trout. Caught 3 without retying - bad practice, good fun. P.J.'s soaked, back home.
    .. Time for a late breakfast.
