Default Tarpom again

We were in place at dawn. Suddenly we had one on and he crossed over two other lines. We took in the fourth line and three of us took the other three poles. There they were, Larry, Curly, and Moe, each with a fishing pole thinking he had the Tarpon. When we got up to the knot, it was a mess so I (Moe) put on my leather gloves and man handled the active line and Roger(Curly) tried to untangle the mess. No way. So I held onto the fish and Roger (Curly) proceeded to cut the line and retie it. Between Tim (Larry) and Roger(Curly) nearly ten minutes was spent trying to tie the lines together while me(Moe) hung on to the fish. Well Larry and Curly absolutely could not tie an acceptable knot. So Moe suggested they put a small swivel between the two line ends instead of the knot. Meanwhile Moe continued to pacify the fish by not tugging too much on Tarpon(Shepp). Shepp didn't seem to worry much and was reasonably agreeable.

Finally the swivel was in place and it was time to fight the fish. But wait, Houston, we have a problem! The swivel was too big to go through the guide on the reel. Not to worry. Shepp finally got tired and went on his way.

Going out again in the morning, then relax for the weekend. We don't want anybody else to discover our favorite spot anyway.

Your friend,
Moe

Moe again. I guess I misspelled it. It think it should be Tarpen.
