Default Angler reels in artificial leg!

In cartoons, anglers catch rubber boots. In real life, they catch somebody's prosthetic leg.

That's the catch Beth Krohn reeled in recently on Lake Ida, near Alexandria, Minnesota. At first she thought it was a real leg. When she realized it was an artificial leg she phoned some specialists and it turned out the leg belonged to Pam Riley of Morris, Minnesota who lost it about three years ago while swimming in Lake Ida.

The women met and Riley got her leg back. Both will remember the trophy that didn't get away.

I wonder if these two are now friends. Pam could be Beth's sidekick
