Nip over to The Carrot Ranch for details of this week’s challenge:
April 26, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a fish tale. It can be about fishing from any angle, about those who fish, or what might be caught. Go where the prompt leads.
I’d never been fishing before, and was afraid to make an ass of myself as I didn’t know how to bait my hook, cast a line, or reel one in if I caught one. Everyone else were dab hands, until we were aboard the privately hired boat and I discovered they were dangler anglers.
I felt better, relaxed and began to have fun.
I caught the first fish, an ugly brute with scissor teeth I was informed was a snapper.
I caught some others too and they all went in the bucket.
Boy, did they taste good!
