I got inspiration for this thread from "on-High" (NavetGator). I'm sure our Dads introduced us to fishing, so there ought to be that tribute of light-hearted fish-tales. Me still in the crib, but Dad decided to take my sister fishing from a boat on a small, primitive quiet river-creek. She was 6 and hyper-excited. Dad is real-real laid back. Catching fish was secondary to just being there in the Calm. So while he's threading the earthworm on her hook, he begins his slow spiel about fishing is all about patience. While he's still teach-talking, Sis whips that bait at the water and immediately yanks it back. She'd lodged that hook into the side of a decent brim. There went the "how to lesson".
