I have seen the old Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and Cribs shows without one whit of envy. Felt a bit of jealousy when Billy Joel married Christie Brinkley way back when. But I am livid at that guy for catching MY fish from MY part of the river.

YOUR fish. Not so fast, next time use the right bait and remember to throw after you light it. :-)
