The Girl with the Brook Trout Tattoo

My separated- at- birth friend from Savannah, Gil Tracy, recycles Larsen’s title with these shots of his daughter Julia, a French scholar, fishing in North Carolina…hey Russ Chatham, take a look at these!

UPDATE: Here is a poem about Julia’s tattoo by her grandmother, who was a friend of Flannery O’Connor’s, and appears in her letters:

  1. Recently from the pen of Julia:
    I cast and drop the line
    In fast black flow,
    the brook and rainbow yield to sun
    and show,
    My father gives the sign

    And draws the slender curve
    to land his fly
    where a gold lip of water pools nearby,
    and tugs the river’s wild nerve.
