  • A childhood memory...

    My father and I used to go bass fishing at a local quarry. We would go at sunset and throw Jitterbugs into the darkness.

    Well one night we went out and pulled up to our usual parking spot and noticed an older gentleman sitting on the edge of a long dock. We struck up a conversation only to notice this fella was in the midst of getting sloshed and he had the brown paper bag and bottle to prove it.

    We walked a little ways down from him and commenced to fishing, his eyes following our every move.

    My dad let his Jitterbug fly across the water in one of those beautiful sky high arcs. Now I really don't know what this bat thought he was pursuing, but he got it.

    Both treble hooks buried in this rat with wings. So here's my dad, rod pointed to the heavens, reel singing like a church choir, and this bat cutting didoes in the air.

    The whole time this drunk is watching in total disbelief. He'd rub both eyes, slap himself repeatedly and spin in circles trying to follow that bat's path of aerial acrobatics.

    In his attempt to maintain constant visual contact he abruptly discovered where the dock ended and the water began. He climbed out of the water, kneeled on the rocks and began to converse with the Lord. I couldn't hear well but it was something about never drinking Vodka again.

    At that point he turns to my dad and says "All these years and I never knew they stocked flying fish in here! Good luck to y'all, I'm going to bed"

    My father and I have been laughing about that night for 35 years!
