Status: O FLY-FISHIN' *********** I had just tied a beaut -- a dartling with green piping -- and I wanted to test it. I packed up my tacklebox, pressurized my vacc suit, and headed for the Veng pools. My favorite spot shelters under an outcropping, looking down across Olympus Mons. I watched for the silvery back of Old Charlie -- my nemesis, as Veng go. He's cunning, even for a shark-eel. He loves to bite through my lines. Once he clipped my best fly, a purple tanglehook, and wouldn't give it back unless I gave him some chicken. But the dartling will fool him. I know it. -- This post is COPYRIGHT 1995, Andrew Solberg.
