HAIKU MONDAY: On Springer Fever, Soccer Drama and Hack’s Honey Holes

Welcome back to Haiku Monday, where Fish Hack is rubbing a little aloe on the red spots from a weekend of watching Tax Deduction No. 2, aka The Predator, play soccer.

Gonna make up by thinking spring Monday.

The first day of spring/Isn’t April 21st./It’s first springer caught.

For you few Haiku Monday virgins, this is where Fish Hack waxes on and off non-Brazilian style about the outdoors or whatever the hell comes to mind, with some forms of ancient Japanese poetry sprinkled in just so the New England poetry societies have a reason to click on.

But it’s just a schtick to get clicks, baby!

Fish Hack filterless./Calls B.S. just for the fight./You say otherwise?

 While Fish Hack should have been looking to turn a springer’s eyes into X’s, got stuck in K-Falls for TD#2′s soccer games.

No biggie. With outflows from Lost Creek dam increasing this weekend, the chance of catching a springer was about as even to getting a well-officiated soccer game in K-Falls.

But the springer odds should improve this week as the water drops and springers will be on their horse. Fish the inside lanes in 4-6 feet of water with plugs. And be careful with those wild springers you release.

Just not where Fish Hack is.

Hack’s readers get tips./Just don’t take Hack’s Honey Holes./Or the tips dry up.
