A long, long time ago.....

My brother, Jeff, sent this short article to me recently. Back in March of 1979 (I was 8) my grandfather took Jeff and I along with his best friend Tex and his grandsons fishing at Lake Isabella in California. Us four boys spent just about all day long reeling in crappie after crappie. Our grandpas could hardly keep up. We ended up catching over 400 crappie that day. The local newspaper took our picture and wrote a small article about us as well. Over a thirty year period we’ve had a hard time locating that newspaper clipping so the attached picture/article is about all that’s left. That’s pretty cool for Jeff and I but it sure does make us feel old.
