Hillary's Great Fish Story, (as told by Me!)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! I am on the floor in tears laughing! I am surprised that Dave would even tell it.

Did you know that I love to fish? Kinda goes hand in hand with the whole Camping/Hiking love.
So I brought my dad's fishing pole and all his gear and hoping to catch a fish. I even Woke up at 5:30 in the morning two days in a row! Finally Thursday night I was all geared up to go and they told me I couldn't go. I had REALLY wanted to eat trout that night. So, currently in a state of PMS, my eyes start to well up and they hastily say "Ok, we can go." It was my bishop and Dave, excuse me Bro. Cook. I think they just couldn't stand to see me cry. Hee Hee.
We got there and I caught a fish within like 5 minutes. End of story.................................................

At least that is what I told everyone when I got back. But Heidi and I were laughing so hard we finally gave it away. The real story was...

I was still having no luck when a Dad and his daughter come walking by and they are holding this 14 inch fish. They stopped and said "Do you guys want this fish? We usually don't keep them, but this one started to bleed." We all looked at each other and I thought, Hmm I really want to eat a fish tonight, but what if I catch one, then I'll have two? Then I thought, Aw to heck with it and I scrambled up the hill to them and said "I do!"

We continued to fish when Dave said "Ok, what are we going to tell everyone. We have to get our story straight." I thought about it for a sec and then said
"Hey hey bishop? Can you throw this fish at me?" I handed him the fish and then backed up a good distance, he threw it to me, and i caught it! Tee Hee!
Then my bishop made me gut it, (yuk!) Dave even got pictures.
We had an extremely elaborate cover. I caught the fish. I used power bait (we found power bait in it's stomach. I used power bait to fish) i used a pole (not to catch the fish, but if they assume, well, its bad to assume, right?) i gutted the fish.

If it wasn't for me looking at Heidi and bursting out laughing, it would have worked! Dave says I have an awful poker face.

When I get pictures, I'll post them, K?

Holy.. wow. Good thing you know how to think on your feet and legitimize the "catching"!
