“My Fishing Adventure”
was created especially for
Bobby Gene Powers
at the age of 58
With Love From,
It had been a long day, and Bobby Powers was ready to hit the sack. As usual, he was looking forward to his favorite bedtime activity - reading his fishing catalog.
Although he rarely caught anything, Bobby was hooked on fishing. If he could only learn to land the big ones on the Colorado River!
Certainly Bobby, at the ripe old age of 58, was no longer a child. However, Jamie, Lisa, and Billy suspected that deep down, he would always be a kid at heart when it came to fishing.
Fortunately for Bobby, nobody knew Bobber Bear was his hero! He carried his bear with him on every fishing trip.
Being a real snoozer, Bobby began to doze off. He started to dream he had become Bobber Bear.
This was the most exciting dream he had ever had in his whole life! Mutt, his fishing pal, was also transformed into a bear.
Now, to most of us, being transformed into a bear might be cause for a little concern. But Bobby was excited about it!
After all, bears, unlike himself, often catch fish. Not wanting to waste the opportunity, Bobby and Mutt hurriedly entered the local fishing tournament. Maybe this time they would win...something!
Bobby and Mutt checked out sinkers, flies, hooks, floats and anything else they might need for the fishing contest at The Best Little Lure House. They also found time to pick up a few munchies and some cold beverages.
Bobby didn't have enough pocket change to buy the new boat he admired. You'd think anything was possible in a dream!
Next, Bobby and Mutt decided a visit to a fish aquarium would be beneficial. Last year, after being skunked at the tournament, Bobby had bought a rather large fish to fool Jamie, Lisa, and Billy.
Embarrassingly, though, the fish he had purchased was not even local to the area. Bobby's credibility as a fishing wizard went right down the drain!
Before they knew it, they were at their favorite fishing hole on the Colorado River. Bobby and Mutt opened their cold beverages and started some serious fishing.
As usual, the bites were incredible! Unfortunately, only the mosquitos and flies enjoyed the action.
Several hours (and beverages) later, Bobby and Mutt were getting discouraged. Despite being fishing bears, they still weren't catching any fish!
“Phew, it sure seems hot today,” exclaimed Bobby. “I'm sure I've had too much sun!” He opened yet another beverage.
After trying all their other lures, they decided to switch to worms. Worms wiggled so much, and because Bobby was also a klutz, he often hooked himself, not the worm. Mercifully, Mutt agreed to bait his hook.
“We've got to catch something.” they both agreed. “Otherwise, we'll have to listen to all that ridicule from Jamie, Lisa, and Billy again this year.
Bobby prided himself on being a skilled angler. There was nothing he couldn't do with a rod and line.
However, today his coordination seemed to be off. This was just more proof he had already had too much---------sun!
After losing more than a few worms, sinkers and hooks, Bobby was finally successful.
“Looks like a fish, only smaller!” quipped Mutt.
“Well, at least I caught something that was alive!” retorted Bobby. “I can't wait to show Jamie, Lisa, and Billy the 20-pound boot you hooked.”
Bobby and Mutt had been fishing for hours and had only caught that one small fish. “I can't believe this!” complained Bobby. “I thought bears always caught lots of fish!”
“Why don't you just wind in your line, and let's eat our lunch?” Mutt asked. “Then we can go home.”
“I can't now,” grumbled Bobby, “I think I'm snagged again.”
Suddenly, there was a big jerk on the end of Bobby's line. No...it wasn't Mutt.
“LOOK!” Bobby shouted, as he grabbed his rod.
Now Bobby and Mutt knew the sun must really be affecting them. They imagined this fish was so-o-o-o big that it started pulling their boat!
Of course, never having caught a big fish before, they thought it wasn't hard for their imaginations to play such a trick on them. However, they were going so fast, Mutt had to hold on to keep from flying out of the boat along with everything else!
As the story goes, the boat went faster and faster. Furthermore, it was claimed that fishermen came from miles around to witness this incredible event.
Bobby clearly remembered Jamie, Lisa, and Billy cheering (or was it jeering?) from the shore. “I'm going to catch this fish and win the trophy even if it takes me all night!” declared a determined Bobby.
To everyone's surprise, especially Jamie, Lisa, and Billy, Bobby somehow managed to land the fish. Even more unbelievable, he was proclaimed the winner of the fishing tournament.
“Bobby! Wake up!” said Mutt, shaking Bobby out of his dream. “I just entered us in the fishing tournament. Let's go now, or we'll be late!”
