Geocache Description:

This is meant to be an easy, beginner's cache. After all it's much
more fun to Find a Cache, than not- Right?
This cache is in a small park surrounded by businesses, so please be discreet when retrieving and re-hiding cache.

This is a lock-n-lock container, filled with fishing related items. Please rehide cache as found. We liked this Poem, and hope you enjoy it also.

The Angler.

THE sun looks down on many a stream,
The stream beholds but one bright sun,
And in a fair reflected beam
It sparkles till the day is done.

I know beneath that limpid tide,
In those cool depths, far out of sight,
Uncounted trout and bass abide
I know, and yet they never bite.

I know this is as fair a spot
As ever human heart could wish,
And yet the other side, I wot,
Looks like a better place to fish.

I've said that failure is a crime,
A culpable, excuseless thing,
And yet I know that I must climb
The hill path with an empty string.

I know that truth's a jewel bright,
I know it and I heave a sigh,
To think that I'll go home to-night
And tell a great, unholy lie.

__Albert Bigelow Paine
