SWEA CITY MAN, I 83, TELLS OF RECORD CATCH SWEA CITY _ When a man lands a 5M:-foot fish,. weighing over 100 pounds, that's news. When, as in the case of Wm. F. Leland. of Swea City, he does so unassisted, within a few weeks of his 83rd birthday, that's a record. Outdoor sports and Bill Leland are practically synonymous. "I've been fishing all my life", he admits, "long enough, I guess, so that I should be quitting." His son Stanley, of Story City, is well known to Iowa sportsmen, having been state boat inspector and at other times a game warden. The two recently enjoyed a week of fishing in the White River country in southeast Arkansas, where Bill Leland made his phenomenal catch. The fish was an alligator gar. The Lelands were still fishing by day in water 10' to 20 feet detp. Th* elder Mi-, inland was ufcing a flaw surface rod, witn star dra* reel' and 900 feet of 80- pound test line. When the monster fish struck. Bill knew he had a battle ahead. Skill and patience would be needed. "Was I excited? Well, some." admits the usually imperturbable Mr. Leland. "But a' person doesn't want to get too excited; easy, easy does it." The fish ran out over 600 feet of the extra-heavy · line, and it took over an'hour to land him. Mr. Leland had plenty to do without consulting his watch just then, but later a near- · by fisherman who landed another , gar of comparable size required I an hour and thirteen minutes to ! bring .the thrashing, fighting I creature within range where he could shoot it with a belt gun. . So it seems reasonable to conclude that the Leland fish gave battle for about the same amount i of time. [ The bait used to catch Lei land's monster was a IVl-lb. fish I known as a sheepshead. but j whose correct name, Mr. Leland asserts, is 'dram'. The monster gar has scales shaped like an arrowhead, and feeds pn smaller fish, much in the manner of the northern pike. The only edible species of garfish, the alligator gar is found only in southern waters. Arkansas sportsmen and conservation- are glad to have them removed from their lakes and rivers, and welcome the fishermen who come to fish their waters. "They're wonderful people down there," i says Mr. Leland. Besides the White River, he and his son also fished the Arkansas River, using both boat and shore fishing in each stream. In the White River country, a mecca for anglers, it is customary for fishermen to' employ a native guide and,do float fishing. Not so with the Lelands. "We never employ a guide," says the ^elder Leland »vith pardonable pride. "That's half the fun." Verv few fishermen are expert enough I to be able to emulate the Lelands in this particular, ^however, and j still fewer would experience similar success. "We got several alligator gar," reports Mr. Leland, "and Stanley pulled out one about as large as my big one.'.' Pictures were taken of the catch, but have not yet been developed. Mr. Leland has a.few scales from his prize. The rest of the monster made tasty fish steaks. Fishing is not the only interest that this dignified, 6-foot gentleman of the old school. Bill Leland,,-enjoys. Last November, on his 82nd birthday, which occur- during the pheasant-shoot- ing season, Mr. Leland joined the hunters -and uut.-hol and uul- tfamped men a fraction of his age, bagging his limit of birds before npon. During the recent fishing trip, his wife remained with her daughter-in-law at Story City, preferring to leave fishing to the men. But she shares her husband's interest arttt enthusiasm, and is truly proud of his latest achievement. Mrs. Leland is the : former Mary Simon, of St. Joe. ; The Lelands have been married ' over 62 years. ' Mr. ,anjl Mrs. Charles Kesler . attended, the 45th wedding anni- ; versary observance of her cou- ] sins, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Halvor- r sen. "of Armstrong, which was hc.'d at the home of the Hulvor- sen daughter. Mrs. Arnold LeMaire. in Fairmont. Sunday, Sept. 5.

She will take'a toime of i training for stenographic ant re- i ceptionist work. i The Teen-Age Mission Society of Immanuel Lutheran church i will meet Sept. 9 wit£Mary Lou Blomster. Janice Satiftner will ! assist the hostess. j T h e Rev. A. M. Youngquist i will go to Rock Island. Ill* on Thursday to attend the three- l day conference of Augustana sv- ! nod pastors there Sept. 7-9.' j The flower show and supper i given by the Immanuel Lutheran , ladies aid circles was yery suc- | cessful. They had · a large num- .ber of visitors and a fine display 'of flowers. The supper served to the public by two" of t h e Aid circles netted over $100. The Rev. and Mrs. Everett Beat and baby Larry, have returned from a two weeks.vacation with relatives · in southeastern Iowa and western Illinois.
