Shakespeare's Back Cast

Fly Fishing Shakespeare


In an attempt to offer that I am not simple single-minded, or socially malnourished in my approach to life. I offer a glimpse of what could have been, had Shakespeare himself experienced a proper brungin'up.


Hope you have all had a great 4th!



Shakespeare's Back Cast

Come, let’s away to stream;
We two alone will fish like Herons o’ the cage:
When thou dost catch a fish, I’ll kneel with net,
And ask of thee forgiveness: so it shall live,
And cast loop, and set hook, and tell old tales,
And laugh at hatching Mayflies,
And hear poor rogues talk of work and strife.”

Adaptation from:
—Lear in King Lear
