The "Trout Ball" CD. A Collection of 14 Wacky, Zany Fishing Songs and Poems by Greg Keeler
(scroll down to play samples from the CD!)

Trout Ball CDTroutball is a hilarious music CD about the sport of Fishing. Some of the songs are destined to become "fishermans anthems". The CD is especially entertaining to anyone who fly fishes, but is not exclusively for that audience. Guaranteed to make you laugh out loud.

Greg Keeler is a poet, a musician, a college professor, a fly fisherman...and above all, funny! Here's what writers and critics have to say about Greg's work:

"Greg Keeler is a sensible and senous poet who also happens to be laugh-out-loud funny" - Tim Cahill

"Greg Keeler has written lunatic masterpieces. He sings pretty good for such a big guy. He's my absolute favorite pracitioner of whatever the hell it is he practices, in all of America." - David Quammen

"Keeler's works are "fuzzy monsters filled with wit, spit and intelligence. Rise on them." - Gary Snyder

"Greg painted "Trout Ball" on the cover of this CD because he's never cared for the fish art found in most shops. That strikes a familiar chord with me. His songs and poems about fishing do the same thing. They also make me laugh.

These fishing songs wene selected from nine different tapes dating back to 1986. Greg's other songs cover a broad range of subjects. Some of my favorites are "White Guy Dancin", "Manly Men", "Dirt Bike Call", "PIanet Of Morons" and "Codependent Cowgirl". I also strongly recommend his hardback book of poetry "AMERICAN FALLS" (Confluence Press) which contains 80 poems - half of which are about fishing. Like the songs they hit the sweet spots in this great sport." - Gear Man

Here's the words to these two numbers from the CD.

1. White Fish Blues

When I see rainbow jumpin',
Make me want to pinch my barb 'cause she's so fine.
Yes, when I see rainbow jumpin',
Make me want to pinch my barb 'cause she's so fine.
But when I see white dog poppin in a patch of scum, Baby.
I don't even want to wet my line.

Your rainbow's gonna leap against the line Honey.
Don't you know your brown trout's gonna dig.
Yes, you're rainbow's gonna leap against the line, Honey.
Don't you know your brown trout's gonna dig.
But your white dog's gonna get down on all fours and wallow, Baby,
Sort of like you snagged a passing pig.

Your brook trout look like jewelry.
Diamonds and rubies shine like stars.
Yes, your brook trout look like jewelry
Diamonds and rubies shine like stars.
But your white dog look like something sold only on television,
That you'd use to vacuum out your car

2. Neoprene Waders

Alas my love it might seem obscene
When I slip into my Neoprenes
'Cause when I wear them out to the stream,
They fit like a giant condom.
Neoprenes are my one desire.
They fit so snug and they keep me dryer
Than my old chest waders or stocking feet,
And they make me feel sexy, my Neoprenes.

When I grab my rod and head for the holes
To keep from slipping I wear my felt soles.
If you think that fishing sounds quite obscene,
Just wait till I peel on my Neoprenes.
Neoprenes are my one desire
'Cause I'm safe and snug in the bog and mire.
Though they make me sweaty, I'm always ready
To sheathe my body in Neoprene.

Though the river is fertile with fish and beaver,
I practice safe fishing so the stream won't conceive
Of a way to dunk me or soak my jeans.
Yes' I peel on my form-fitting Neoprenes.
Neoprenes are my one desire.
They set my soul and my loins on fire.
Fishing dry flies to riffles or nymphs to seams,
I stand erect in my Neoprenes.
