I went fly-fishing,

and, as the joke goes,

caught a four pound bluebottle –

but I had to let it go.

I wasn’t actually using a hook,

or a line, or a Rod, Jane, or Freddy.

To be honest,

I never actually went fly-fishing,

as I have no desire to capture

or cause injury

to a huge wingéd insect.
