Chris Smither does a bluesy version of Danny O'Keefe's Catish on his Another Way to Find You CD. The words go (hope I get this right):
Standing by the water, staring at the stream
Tell me honey are there any Catfish in your dreams.
Catfish ain't expensive and neither is it free,
Some folks crazy 'bout it others have to let it be. CHORUS
You walk down to the bank and then you flash your bait
You're looking for a catfish child you ain't got long to wait.
Catfish got whiskers and a sweet little grin,
But you can't never tell where a catfish has been.
I'll be your catfish honey any old time,
Just call out my name and drop in your line.
Cause I'm standin' by the water...(repeat chorus)
WW, I do a bit of fly fishing and get a lot of my tchotchkes(?) from Hook and Hackle's website at very reasonable prices. And for inspiration lately I've been reading Tom McGuane's "The Longest Silence", a collection of his fishing stories. Frankie
