ARK I love fishing. It's like transcendental meditation with a punchline. ~ Billy
CoxNo!.I.Y All fishermen are liars; it's an occupational disease with them like

LET'S GO FISHING You, no doubt, have already read my stories "Ice Out with Jr.
Denton" and "Mr. Holmes Loses his Fishing Spot" and are starting to draw your
own opinion as to the authenticity of these stories. You know how the old saying
goes, "All fishermen are liars except you and me and I'm not so sure about you."
So it boils down to just me, and I don't lie about the size of my fish or my method
