But it's already on the way), f have just finished reading one of your "Dope Buckets", one with a fish tale, so f thought I would drop you a "line" ami tell you a bigger one. You see, his line. It put up no fight whatsoever, when we hauled it upon the beach, much to our surprise and nmnzcniDiU, it turned out lo be an 87-pound Sting Ray. It measured 2!i feet across. -We were thrilled to death with the catch. So we made some snap shots of it and they turned out beautifully. He got the print and I got the negatives. Have been trying to get them home without success. I have come lo the conclusion that I had rather fish in good ol' Arkansas than any place I know. Have been noticing quite a few of the fellows' addresses in your column: Bill Crowe and Clarence Bowie, r have looked this jungle over for them but they are as hard to find as a Jap sniper.
