Do Not Forget - - FISHING IS MEANT TO BE FUN - -


  - Fish Facts:   1830 - Julio Buel, of Castleton, Vermont, invented the spoon-shaped fishing lure.
Buel reportedly was fishing when he dropped a tablespoon into the water and watched a fish strike at it.
The incident inspired him to devise a lure with a hook soldered to the concave side of a spoon..

Fisherman´s Prayer
God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day, and when the final cast is made and life has slipped away,
I pray that God ´s great landing net will catch me in its sweep, and in his mercy, God will judge me big enough to keep.
