Beautiful and eternal. The cutthroat rises to the fly from the depths of the river for only an instant, teasing, tantalizing, as the long line reaches out. The game continuesââ'¬â€the hook is set, the quarry played and the players ready to assume their roles.


Ted Dyckââ'¬â"¢s Cutthroats & Other Poems pulses with the energy, the anticipation, and the elation that every fisherman knows. Each line and verse binds life and death, man and nature together, reminding us of a terrible beauty that includes us.
