OH NO! Not the magnificent Magnetic Cows again! They were responsible for the worst outbreak of Haiku ever experienced on the FF@ list!

It took 5 years, but we've come full circle: We're back to using cow magnets to retrieve hooks. 8^)

It takes a strong pole
to lift Elsie into trees
for stray fishing lures

Need better method?
can't lift the magnetic beast?
use a trebuchet

_Oh no!, you had to go and did that didn't you!
I guess winter is ofishal now

I probed the creek bed
Found some tipped cows rolling stones
Bovine cluster roll

uh oh.... =)))

Hey, it's the 21st century -- use "rare earth" magnets instead! they're freakishly powerful - and come in diameters that could be easily inlaid into the bottom end of a staff or something. Your biggest problem with putting one of those in your wading staff might be unexpectedly getting "stuck" on some rusty old car part on the bottom of the stream.... =)))

Lee Valley Tools sells them here, couldn't say where you'd get 'em in the US....

cows are so passť
space age magnet finds bottom
holds you to the spot

Use iron-doped trout chow,
Electromagnet in staff
For catch and release

Feed trout iron pellets
Fish with magnet tied to fly
Instead of a hook
