Off to that great showtime rotisserie oven in the sky.

Never heard of the man, however it is nice to read about someone who made good.

     On his tomb stone at the bottom it should be inscribed with, "But wait , there is more".

Ah, the pocket fisherman. Revered by motorcyclist's everywhere. :wink:

John Henry

On a trip to the Florida Keys in the early 70's a childhood friend pulled out his Pocket Fisherman at one of the fishing underpasses on Rt.1. He quickly snagged a large fish which ripped the device out of his hands and in a blink he removed his boots & shirt and dove into the rushing water in pursuit of his loss. He quickly realized this was not a good idea as the tide was going out and taking him and his recovered fishing pole out to sea. Fortunately another guy who was fishing nearby had a rope and we pulled him in before he was gone. 

A few years ago I sent him a Pocket Fisherman on his birthday and signed it, The Fish That Got Away.
