Catching "The Big One" A Dream Come True
It's a beautiful sunny day here in Sterling. How the little things can mean more than imaginable. My niece Devin for two years now has tried catching "the big one" while fishing my pond. She has claimed "the fish got away", "I had him on my line", "he broke my line", "he ate my hook" etc. Of course all this happened while people were over but no one really believed she had "a big one" on her line. My pond is not huge but too small for a boat. There are pan fish on average of 7"-8" and Bass averaging 14" or less which are all good size. Yesterday during the day Devin came over to fish and blessed as I was to witness her excitement, she caught "the big one", a 19.5" Large Mouth Bass. Dreams come true! I was so happy for her and the sheer joy I saw in her face was priceless. Sometime the little things aren't so simple and the simple things aren't so little.
