From My Window ... by I.C. Toowell
In April 28 Issue

One of the better fishing stories occurred in Russell County last week and we just have to pass it along.

Jerry D. Roy was telling us the tale and since the main character is this story are friends of his,  he has withheld the names. ( It is actually because feared he feared the lady would smack his head).

Anyway, the story goes that this gentleman has a great relationship with his Mom who is also his fishing buddy.

He decides to get her a new rod and reel and take her fishing so away they go. We are told they  were fishing for the big catfish and she baits her new rod and reel  and lays it across a rock while they discuss the day.

All at the once, the rod jumps up, over the rock, down the bank and right into the water.

Big fish, new rod and reel and all....gone.

A few days alter they return for another fishing excursion. Only with an old rod and reel. Again, line baited, pole in place and just waiting for the big fellow to come back.

Again, all at once, the pole jumps up, but this time they catch it and the son jumps right in the edge of the water to help Mom hang onto this one.

Both leap with excitement and sure enough it was  a huge catfish. He grabs for the fish and what does he see, wrapped on the back of the fish was his Mom’s new rod and reel they had previously lost. He grabs for the rod and reel, Mom holds on to the old rod and reel and the big cat, flops a couple of times and away he goes.

The story is not over yet.

We are told a few days later they decide to take another little fishing excursion. Back to same ole fishing hole. This time they are getting everything in place for another round with the big cat. Line baited, ready to cast out when all at once both feel fly out from beneath Mom and in the lake she goes.

Jerry says she is telling she fell in, but he said the truth was known she had just decided to take matters in her old control and just go after the big boy.
