However, Hoke wanted to transfer this concept of sacred space to touch multiple lives. An opportunity arose when Hoke needed a way to stay in contact with the men that no longer received his full attention. In “Fly Fishing with the Damned” Hoke begins fly-fishing with ex-gang members. To his surprise, the excursions along the Skagit River become so popular that whole families began to follow their pilgrimage into the wild. He even takes two men, Juan and Teddy to a fly-fishing class – transplanting their gang loyalties to a passion for nature: a new sacred space.
The only things you can hear are the sounds of nature and animals. I had about a one hundred yard walk to my duck blind through the thick iced over water. With every step I took, the ice made a loud crushing sound. It was way below freezing and the water that slashed up under the ice chilled my hands. Once I got to the duck blind, I decided to take a seat and try to warm up.
I was so delighted that see that and wanted to catch my own. Then my brother's friend started to catch fish too and I was about to crack. I tried to keep myself calm and was saying to myself that I'm going to catch a fish. The clock was ticking, hours passing by and I wasn't catching anything. Everyone was catching fish and showing them off.
They fished for mostly salmon, and collected native plants and roots like the camas bulb. “Buffalo served as the most significant source of food and raw material for the tribe 's” (History of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes). They would go around collecting foods to eat during the winter months. The Bannocks may have had to work for quite a bit of they year but they still found time to play games and have very amusing traditions. Another substantial part of the Bannock tribe are it traditions.
As the story continues the boy is forced to make a decision, he needs to chose between a girl and fishing. He has the biggest bass he has ever had on the line and on page 4 he decided; “I pulled a penknife from my pocket and cut the line in half.” Later on page 4 he later said, “...and I never made the same mistake again.” These last two excerpts represent the young boy making a hard decision, realizing it was a bad one, overcoming it, moving on and choosing not to make that mistake again. Making the fourteen year old one step further in the steps from childhood to
He also can tell what kind of fish it is by the amount of tug on the line by the fish. But the bass is also big and impressive for fishing like it is so big that it was pulling the boat backwards when they were on there little date. It also comes in the shallows at night to chase the frogs and other things. However, to the 14 year old Sheila is very attractive and is the love of his life. The way he watches her tan and he loves the way she looks in a white dress and her swimsuit.
I was taught to cast a fishing line and how to handle a 12 gauge shotgun by my father and my Uncle Joe. We’d spend countless hours fishing for trout, but most of our time went towards duck hunting and it is still the best way for me to relax and clear my mind. Duck hunting is a very social kind of hunt and that means it calms my spirit. Hunters experience nature in such a way that they become part of it, and when that experience is shared with another human, it forms a bond like no other. Some of the best conversations I’ve ever had took place sitting in a duck blind, waiting for the ducks to fly overhead.
When that little deer gets caught in a forest fire, I was terrified, but I was also Exhilarated”(Greene). These feeling are what inspired King to write the iconic scene, “At the far end of the concrete ring, Danny heard the stealthy crackle of dead leaves as something came for him on its hands and knees. At any moment he would feel it 's cold hand close over his ankle...”(King, Stephen 423).This gives the reader the same feeling the King felt as he watch Bambi. The growing tension of impending danger, and the fear of the demise of a character. Those emotions had such a large impact of King that he enjoys creating the same feelings for his writers throughout The Shining.
This theme I felt matched Roethke’s poem “My Papa’s Waltz” sense of his adolescent mind clouding what may have been actually occurring. I continued this theme when I wrote, “It dashed behind a vegetation veil; I ran after it with great persistence”. I used of the phrase “vegetation veil” to produce a jungle type image in the reader’s head, I did this to continue the nostalgic viewpoint, and to add more imagery to the poem. In the final stanza, I chase the faux deer around a corner, and I find a raging waterfall. I actually did find a rather large waterfall on the trip; that was not an exaggeration.
