The weather was great, the air was full of anticipation. The pond was abuzz with excitement. The anglers were briefed on the competition rules. Each one silently wishing for the biggest fish. Unfortunately, the fish were not very co-operative. Despite the mediocre catch, it was an extremely fun session with both old and new friends.
