Weldon Lands a Big Fish
My niece Danielle's son Zach caught a big ol' bass yesterday. He went
with his dad, David Weldon down Leavellwood Fishing and Hunting Lodge
and caught this 6 pound bass on a silver pearl fluke! Danielle Capps
Weldon is from Dora High School's Class of 1990 and David is from the
Class of 88.
I'm guessing that bass almost pull Zach into the water. If a human had
the (proportional) strength of a six pound bass, he would be able to
bench press a 1957 Buick Roadmaster.
I love to fish.....well more specifically, I love the water. I don't
really have to catch a fish. That is reflected in the fact that I haven't
caught that many fish in my life. But I have caught a few. I caught a
three pound bass one time and I felt like I was trying to land Moby Dick.
My arm was sore when I got that fish in the boat.
The Overalls do a song in their repertoire and the line goes:
The important part of fishing is not the fish but the fishing,
This song nails it. It's not about
the destination but the journey. Give me gently flowing water,
dragon flies, water birds, the smell off water Lillie's, and a
gently rocking boat and I'm a happy man.
I'm guessing ol' Zach here is hooked (pun intended) on fishing too and
I expect he'll land more big fish as he travels down his life's journey.
