THE GENTLE BEAUTY OF SPRING
HANNE LORE KOEHLER:
Early spring in Southern Ontario cities can get quite messy; the freeze and thaw cycles create countless pot-holes in our streets that fill with slush and dirty salty run-off. When a vehicle hits, the mess can get splashed for many feet, leaving a town looking drenched in brown and gray. Then, suddenly, a warm spring rain can blow in, cleaning up the unsightly mess and washing away all signs of winter. In the country, lingering white patches of snow are still evident among early spring browns that fade to distant blues. The warm spring air that collides with the cold air surrounding these snowy bits creates a fog that can can hang over an entire area. Misty meadows and moody tones reflect the temperamental whims of the season.
Slowly, the moody brown tones remaining after Nature has banished winter from her kingdom transform. With each refreshing spring rainfall, the hues on distant hills become greener and greener. The arrival of Spring revitalizes not only the landscape but the spirit with new hope - new dreams. As the spring sunshine gains strength, the pale green folliage of spring begins to sprout. The colorful interwoven branches of a clump of Willows nestled in the frosty banks of the Grand River behind our house, conceal a nest of newly hatched ducklings. Hibernating Southern Ontario farms are slowly warming up to spring. The Mourning Doves have returned to the barn and Robins are staking out their territory. A "V" of Tundra Swans flew high overhead this morning noisily announcing their return although they were only half way to their destination. Life is unfolding as it should.
Beginning as a trickle of melted snow in the forest-covered hills of Northern Ontario that gathers momentum with the addition of each new tributary, a cold ice-water creek meanders under fresh spring growth, merging with a waterfall here and underground run-off there, that soon dissolves into a stream. Each stream develops its own eco-system and becomes the habitat for a myriad of creatures, the most popular of which is the fish. Because Ontario has over 400,000 lakes, streams and rivers that comprise 15% of the world's fresh water, fishing is a favorite leisure sport enjoyed by people of all ages and the arrival of Spring brings out the rods, reels, tackle boxes and fly fishing baskets. Winter's ice fishing huts on a frozen lake are happily replaced by motor boats. Bass, wallaye, trout, pike and perch are only a few of over fifty species of freshwater fish available in Ontario lakes. The relaxing peace and tranquility discovered while fly fishing in a Southern Ontario stream is only interrupted by the occasional nibble and actual catching of a fish. Whether you catch a fish or not, any day spent in pursuit of this creature is classified as a good day fishing. As testament to this, I have seen many a bumper sticker that states: "A bad day fishing beats a good day at the office!"
