Chasing the elusive brown trout.

She preferred a remote dwelling. Off the beaten path where large, hardwood logs randomly tucked themselves along an undercut bank in the river. Crudely built by the high water of spring, her hovel was humble but sturdy. This was her fortress. In the shadow of these naked logs she’d hole up for days. A recluse, withdrawn from others like her.

Maybe it was her European descendants that were to blame for the shyness, whatever the reason, she had a reputation for being ghostlike— refusing to leave her riverside home until after sundown. As one might expect, this type of demeanor birthed a myriad of rumors.

Her reputation became tainted, stained by those who assumed truth without fact. Some thought her to be foxy; deliberately playing those that pursued her. Others claimed she was genuinely flirtatious, but extremely coy. Unfortunately, the majority of these narratives reduced her to fictitious, nothing more than local folklore of Paul Bunyan proportions.
