Writing Sample


In springtime the creek near my house runs very deep. Then the pike and dogfish swim upstream there. Then I put wire netting there to keep the pike and dogfish from swimming through. At frequent intervals I go and look there in the creek where my trap is placed. In time I see the wire moving. That is when the fish have arrived. Then I go and tie fast my fish spear. Then I spear those fish. Sometimes I manage to spear two of them before they all get away.
