55 word flash game yokey with the dogfish

He yanked the rod, a dogfish was whipped from the sea.

He stamped on it.

‘Take the hook.’

I tore at its mouth. It tore my finger.

‘Welcome to the top of the food chain.’ He said, and kicked it back into the water.

Sea smells exploded in my five year old brain.

I love how you captured this moment and memory. Funny how some of them stay with us so clearly for so long -- while those who share in them might never remember them at all.

Cool 55!!

I never realized how brutal fishing was. Very vibrant imagery. Great 55!

Dogfish are the only inedible fish that I've ever encountered.
They deserve to be kicked back to the sea.
Excellent 55 My Friend!
Thank You for visiting and this fine contribution, and have a Kick Ass Week-End!...Galen

I so remember the first time I went fishing and cried for hours because there was nothing on my line when I pulled in the line.
