I just had a dangerous idea. You kinda inspired it with some of the inane comments that proceeded this post.  What if we started a Short story thread where everyone contributed a sentence! Since I have invented this format I go first. Here Goes!!

It had been a long day on the water and I had just one minnow left, as I hooked it through the lips I noticed that it was missing an eye.

As I looked at this eye,  or should I say lack of eye,  I had to wonder about the future of the this last hurrah for me today.

"I've always done well with one-eyed bait", I thought as I tossed my offering into the depths.

I watched with eager anticipation as "One Eyed Jack" (as I had just named the little guy) swirled from my sight to the depths below.
Email me to swap information on fishing holes or to go fish'in sometime in the Syracuse Central NY area (Onondaga and Madison county water holes in particular).

*t had been a long day f*shing my favor*te r*ver, and * had just one m*nnow left, as * hooked *t through the l*ps * noticed that *t was m*ss*ng an *.  Come to th*nk of *t, as * was f*sh*ng for wall*s all day long w*thout a h*t, * th*nk that all of my m*nnows were m*ss*ng the*r *s.  All of a sudden, * couldn't see a th*ng.  * reached up to my *s and they were gone too!  I heard a wh*rr*ng sound above me all of a sudden, and *t became extremely warm.  * felt myself l*fted out off of the bank, float*ng up *n the a*r.  The be*ngs *ns*de d*d the*r best to calm me down and w*th*n a few m*nutes, my *s were *nserted back *nto my skull.  From that point on, I could see very clearly.  I was lowered out of the spacecraft and back onto the shoreline of my favorite river.  I picked up my rod, reeled in my line to check my bait, and lo and behold, my minnow had both of it's eyes!  I cast it out to a likely spot and caught a 24" 'eye (pictured).

As I removed the tattered minnow from the hook- I thought of the classic line from Grumpy old men,"Looks like its time to take ol' one eye to the optometrist.".......
