Big Fish

the biggest fish i have never caught took almost five hours to reel in.
i never saw him up close,
but still one of the most exciting moments of my life.
he broke the line right at the boat.
i will keep fishing those same waters.
i will use every lure at my disposal.
someone else may hook that fish. he may break off again.
i may get another chance.
i may settle for a smaller fish.
maybe it was just a small fish with a good fight.
i may never know.
but i will become a better fisherman and
there will be mutual respect.
