How to Fish – The Monksville Chronicles #101

We were on the boat cruisin’ around by The Sticks and we saw an osprey perched in a tree. We didn’t get too close, but we could see him and he could see us. So he jumps, takes off, and he was flyin’ around us in a big circle, and we watched him put his wings back – looked like a little jet fighter – and all of the sudden, BOOM! right down into the water he goes, talons first. You don’t realize how deep into the water they go, he was in the water, and he starts flappin’ his wings, catches air, flies up, and he’s got a two-pound walleye in his claws! So he flies out, comes right back around, and lands right in the same tree, not fifty yards from us. We sat there and watched him for an hour just eatin’ that walleye, and then he flew away with a full stomach. That was the day a bird taught me how to fish.
