That tackle sure aint never got wet
but Ennis's "tackle" got action, you bet




Hey Katie, I hear you about the first lines
I'll try to contribute some first lines of mine
They may not be pretty,
nor not very witty,
but who cares? Each first line is one of a kind!

it got hard, that there fishin't they'd do:
Had their gear tangled soon as they met.


Couldn't resist adding the last line. All in your honour don't you know Lucise!  :P

Well! So, I get to start up with a.... ta-daaa! First Line:



Jack would happily drive 14 hours

Jack would happily drive 14 hours,
It sure did beat all those cold showers,
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

It sure did beat all those cold showers,
for he knew his time with Ennis was hot,

The very best "luvin'" he ever got,

The very best "luvin'" he ever got,
Like always, to Ennis he relinquished his powers!
