notes from the boat
Hundreds of feet of line spun madly off the reel and Carl's greatest fishing
ambition was finally realised. He'd snagged the ultimate prize, the marlin.
The dance of the marlin was a beautiful sight to behold as it leapt and
spun, jumping madly as it tried ever more desperately to rid itself of the
lure and be free.
Carl played it for what seemed like hours, slowly reeling in the massive
fish. It started to tire then with another burst of energy flung itself out
of the water again and again. It's hard to gauge the size but we think it
was at least six feet long and that's on the conservative side!
The great fish, its strength gone lay exhausted and calm but not yet
defeated as it somehow finally managed to rid itself of the tantalizing lure
and was gone.
Somehow after that, fishing just hasn't been the same!
