Beautiful and eternal. The cutthroat rises to the fly from the depths of the river for only an instant, teasing, tantalizing, as the long line reaches out. The game continues—the hook is set, the quarry played and the players ready to assume their roles.
Ted Dyck’s Cutthroats & Other Poems pulses with the energy, the anticipation, and the elation that every fisherman knows. Each line and verse binds life and death, man and nature together, reminding us of a terrible beauty that includes us.
