A six-year-old recalls an incident that happened many years ago while on a fishing trip with his father on the Tongariro river.

A contemplation on life and how a good fisherman might navigate the currents as the light of the day fades to black. 

The Wanderer (a Ghost Story) is written by Richard Benefield and told by Peter Hambleton.

It is one of the 2023 Nine to Noon Short Story Competition winners.
