Dolly's book is a masterpiece! Unbelieveable. I may
now reform my wayward life and convert to possumism.
I kid you not. I am giving it serious thought.
Incidentally, she left out one method of fishing, mostly
used for catfish in certain parts of the country. It's called
"hogging" or "noodling". This involves actually getting into a river and then feeling under the banks in holes and
old stumps for catfish. If you find one, stick your hand in his mouth and pull him out! You can tell experienced hoggers by the scrapes and scars on thier arms and hands, or sometimes they may find a snapping turtle
in which case a few fingers might be missing. A sport
certainly not for the faint of heart. I am not making
this up. My grandpa was an experienced hogger.
Back to Dolly................I have not been so inspired in some time. Blackhills Bob, you made my day
