A lot of people have exciting fishing stories to tell you about the one that got away. "It was this big!"
I was riding my bike one day, when something caught my eye, (yes this is another one of my self portraits). It had been raining hard the day before and there was a large puddle in the parking lot I was riding by. As I rode alongside the puddle I could not help but notice a young boy of perhaps eight or nine on the other side. He was holding a fishing rod and slowly dragging back and forth a fish (no longer among the living) that was hooked on to the end his fishing line. "And it was this big!"
