The splash jolted me awake just in time to witness the tail end of my fishing pole disappear into the water.
“You little son of a bitch!” I yelped.
For the better part of the afternoon and well into the evening, I had been sitting alongside a creek known as the Big Muddy. I had been trying to catch the same damn channel cat that had swiped my pole the week before. His total was now at three. If I hadn’t known better, I’d think he had been hanging out by my hook and crawler, waiting for me to close my eyes and drift off. The moonshine certainly had that effect.
Meanwhile, Buzz, my one hundred twenty pound bullmastiff and long time fishin’ buddy, lifted his head briefly, let out a groan, and returned it to its resting place atop his crossed paws. I couldn’t help but laugh as his floppy cheeks flapped as he blew out a deep breath.
