A fisherman's tale:
A couple years ago I thought I'd splurged on an expensive rod and reel,(Maumee Bait & Tackle actually) I usually bought cheap or middle of the road gear. With the new pole, on the first cast I engaged a 29 inch long walleye, while on a call-in to Michigan Public Radio engaging 3 cancer experts about why they hadn't addressed the embryonic nature of cancer(known since 1928), and why 18 years after its discovery they hadn't addressed the master cancer gene, telomerase, which switches over 200 other genes to cancer/growth mode, just like in a fetus. I had the cell phone pinched between my shoulder and ear while I hooked and brought in the fish. I only hooked the fish after I finally got through on the call in line, I'd been on hold while driving to the river (cell phone-speakerphone).
A tall tale but a true tale, and so I swear. One local PhD heard my familiar rap on the radio and actually called to congratulate me right after I had the fish on the stringer. A group in a boat watched and listened as I talked on the phone and caught this monster fish, they had been out on the river all day and hadn't had a fish on.
Its pretty unlikely to get on MPR while fishing and pretty unlikely to catch a monster on your first cast with your shiny new 12 ball bearing reel and fancy rod. Doing both at the same time was a treat. It's even more unlikely to have witnesses, but I do. It was a nice very nice day fishing.
