Default The Adventures of Mike & Curtis: Part 6

[img2="left"]http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/photos/files/4-MikeCurtisPontoonBoat_thumb.jpg[/img2]The Adventures of Mike & Curtis: Part 6

Curtis Sledge had always wanted one of those fancy pontoon boats for fly fishing.

He kept hinting to his good friend, Mike Hammer, to get him one for his birthday.

Mike couldn't afford to buy one. He didn't know anyone who had one so he couldn't steel one.

So, he made one. He gave it to Curtis last month.

With a tear in his eye, Curtis said this was the best birthday he has had since he got his gold plated tooth.

That Curtis is one lucky guy to have a friend like Mike. All the hours of thought Mike must of put into the design is staggering. Of course, I'm sure he was staggering when you was building it knowing that Mike has been know to tip the bottle more than your average fly fisher.

Great stories. Keep them coming.
Thanks,
Terry
