Sight-Fishing On the Cape

“He's a half-mile from shore. Hikes through the rising water for a while, then gets to the creek. He's got the tide flooding up behind him and a deep channel in front of him.

“It's fully dark now and, with two stripers trailing behind, if any sharks are about, he's a virtual human chum slick. He has to bash on. His rod held high, cold water starts to overtop the waders. Bad thoughts creep in. The shore is invisible in the horizonless dark.”
