One of the best things about flyfishing is being interrupted by the antics of some bird.

It’s often a kingfisher, great blue heron or green heron but this guy is a real performer:

“Stut-stut-stut stutter step stutter step stop! American Bittern. He’s the one who walks the walk. If you wear scales, if you’re amphibian, if you sit, if you swim, if you skim the surface under his grim gaze, his beak, his bumpy ways - you gonna die, Old Son.”
