What I caught on....

My first fishin' trip

by Rebel Jim

My name is Dougal MacSwain... These folks here at the "Home" tell me I'm a huntert years old....
That's probably purty near right, but since my whole family got wiped out from the "Blitz" an' me bein' the only survivor with no records anymore,
I tend to believe them....

Anyways, these folks here are wantin' me to tell them about my first fishin' trlp.

Hey it was great! I got to help row the boat out on the Loch. Just me an' Dah on a crisp saturday morning in Scotland. He showed me how to put the crawlies on the hook Then he took the front of the boat as his fiishin' spot an' I took the back.

After Dah pulled up three fish an' me not gittin' anything, I started
reelin' in my line... Then I got that 'HIT" ,,, That first ever!

It's hard to describe that feeling... It was like a five fold adrenaline rush, an' when you're ten or eleven it's a mighty satisfying feeling.... Dah came over to my side of the boat 'cause he saw that I'd hooked on to a good one! "You got Nessie!...Don't lose it lad!" was what I was hearin"....
My pole was bendin' way more than it should have....
Then it happened... What came to the surface wasn't a fish... But an old tractor tyre.

Dah died about forty or fifty years ago, an' through all that time he never let me forget.
"My Dougal boy can sure catch a tyre!"
That took a lonnnng time to live down. An' to this day , what mates of mine that are still alive, wanna go tyre fishin'!
