HAIKU MONDAY: On Bleacher Butt, Not So Honest Work and Big Steelhead

Welcome back to Haiku Monday, where Fish Hack is recovering from a case of Bleacher Butt from a weekend spent on the road with Tax Deduction No. 2′s basketball team instead of plying for steelhead in the upper Rogue River, Fish Hack’s home waters.

No worries. TD#2′s team of Hedrick Middle School eighth graders schooled JV teams from Churchill and Dallas high schools, so well worth trading a sore ass for blisters from a long day of driftboat rowing.

Bleacher Butt-itis:/Hack’s pain but TD2′s gain./Proud Hack’s runt can ball.

For you Haiku Monday virgins out there, this is when and where Fish Hack waxes on and off non-Brazilian style about the outdoors and whatever comes to mind. It’s the schtick to generate hits on this-here blog, generating more money for Da Man and keeping Fish Hack at work.

What Fish Hack calls “work”/Is work, just not honest work./That’s for you suckers.

And too bad.

MT shooter extraordinaire Jamie Lusch went two for four fly-fishing big summers Sunday on the upper Rogue, even getting a 10-plus pounder to the boat.

All on big, chubby black leeches…aka, attorney fles.

Will have to partake some this week. Verification for Friday’s Search and Destroy, aka The Fishing Outlook.

It’s Search and Destroy:/Where to find fish and kill ‘em./Avoid bleacher butt.
