Oh Man, Ohman

3 Word Wednesday: Bait. Jump. Victim.

Oregon's own Jack Ohman is a noted political cartoonist and fly fisher. I recommend his book, Fishing Bass Ackward.

baited hooks dangle
wise fish nibble, submerged, safe
victims jump and gulp

It is funny how these three words have inspired so much about fishing. Not sure if that was the intent...but there it is.

I like your poem. Very visual. I like that the fish is wise enough not to be caught.

ur post does have that fishing sense to it.. yet it somehow reminds me of the corporate ladder too.. where the higher rungs dangle like bait, tempting the ones on the lower end to try n get higher, even if to just bring them down..

"wise fish nibble"

I am grinning ear to ear. I just love this little poem.

'Victims jump and gulp'
That conjures a picture. Good one.

hehe! I like this, and enjoyed the contrast between the victims and the "wise fish."
