The Travels of the Hat, Part 3: Off the Pier
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "Thump, thump, thump." The hat heard the rhythm of steps hitting the dock. He looked up and saw a fisherman and a small boy walking toward him from the far end of the pier. He hoped they would not step on him as he rested. Although it had been exciting to ride on the nose of a dolphin, landing with a thud on the fishing pier was rather uncomfortable. Those boards were a lot harder than the flowing waters of the ocean. But at least now he could get dry. However, that would not mean much if he got stepped on!
 
2     "Hey, Dad, look," said the boy.
 
3     "What, son?"
 
4     "What does that say?"
 
5     They came closer to the hat.
 
6     "It says, ‘Fly Fishing Is Fun,'" the father answered his son.
 
7     "I bet someone is mad about losing it. I wonder if it was a man or a lady?"
 
8     "I wonder, too," answered his dad. "A lot of men like to fish, but there are also some women who are excellent at it. Your mom can hold her own with a fly rod."
 
9     "Can I keep it?" the boy asked.
