Fishing on a river bank…

Fishing on a river bank near Stephenville Texas.
Turtles and snakes looked on while bullfrogs croaked
   a tune and egrets waded in shallows upstream.
All must have had a good laugh at
our futile attempts to catch fish.
Not a nibble even though an insect could
   not light on the river's surface without being
      plucked from beneath.
