By a stroke of luck, I suddenly came into possession of a tub of worms and rigged one on a tiny hook with two split shot. Cousin Nancy was new to the game, so I explained how the push-button reel worked and how to cast. Before I could ready the next rod, she was screaming, "Oh my God! It's a fish! Oh my God! What do I do?" I told her to turn the handle as I waded in after her zigzagging line. It was a little yellow perch, and she was ecstatic.
