RECOVERS LINE AND BIG FISH — KASK ANGLER'S FISH STORY
I am sending you a genuine fish story, which occurred on the Kootenay Lake at Kask, British Columbia, while I was fishing a short time ago, which I think is well worthy of putting in the H-T-T Magazine.
I was trolling for about an hour, when a big salmon struck, and broke my line, two hundred feet. I could see the line still on top of the water and started to back paddle and see if I could not get it. The line was a little too deep, so I could not reach it, still I could see the salmon fighting on top of the water about three hundred feet back so I kept back paddling as fast as I could, keeping my fish in view all the time, thinking I might be able to get him when I got to where the salmon were.
I saw him go down, and reached for the gaff quickly and he came to the surface again. I got my fish, two hundred feet of line, and my bait.
The fish weighed twelve and one-half pounds.
I want this to be made public, for it may save many a disappointed fisherman corning home with no fish, losing his tackle and bait.
B. British Columbia, Can.
