For the next few weeks, we get some great photos from Terry Oxley's photo book. This third and final one is a neat historic picture. Take it away, Terry:
This is me with my first musky. I was fishing with a jointed pikie minnow and I still remember vividly the bend in the Trout River where I caught it. Fifty years ago this past summer! You can tell the era by the name on our fishing boat. The "S" is covered up. I remember my Dad and I staying out way after dark hoping to see satellites passing overhead. The boat was built by one of my uncles, and the fishing pole/reel was a hand-me-down from his wife. It is an old Pflueger Supreme reel, which I still have. The pole has turned up missing the past two summers. I'm hoping I put it someplace safe between here and WI.
