You Should Have Seen the One That Got Away!

On the way home from Austin in March we stopped in Athens, TX at a fishery. We were planning to hike the nature trail which we did, but on the way to the trail we came on the fishing pond. After a quick lesson in casting we tried our luck in the pond. I was a great caster, but didn't get much more than a nibble. Larry caught two. The first was little and I forgot to take a picture before we unhooked it and threw it back. His second catch was a 3 1/2  pound shark (really a catfish) who wasn't at all happy. Larry got a certificate for it being his "first fish" but actually it was his second. The first one wasn't worth mentioning. But then there was the one who nibbled on my bait and got away....
