is a fishing story most of you will find hard to believe. But as you
read on you will find the source is undisputable, and the story surely
proves that not all of "them" get away.
On a recent rainy June 2009 day Vince Christofora Sr.
was fishing from his boat on the upper basin of the Ashokan Reservoir.
With a full compliment of gear purchased from the new tackle shop located
inside Woodstock Hardware, he was hoping to catch the big one. Not soon
after lowering his bait into the water, he got a big bite.
After a rather short battle, the fish took the bait and
Vince Sr. could see the line beginning to go beneath the boat. Thinking
he was about to lose the fish he began to maneuver in the boat, when
to his surprise, the fish leaped out of the water - right into the boat!
No fooling. A five pound trout had landed right inside Vince Sr.'s boat.
A funny story, and a happy one for
the fish as well. After "landing" the fish, Vince Sr. carefully
remove the hook and released the fish back into the reservoir. After
all, that fish has more to learn!
Now that is the way to fish.
So the next time you need fishing supplies or find your
self with a unique fishing story, stop in Woodstock Hardware and let
us give you a hand and help spread your story!
