was talking to a friend about the strangest things that have happened while fishing and thought about what me and 2 other guys did while camping in the park. ( Great Smoky mtns.) we were eating dinner and started to get harrased by raccoons. The raccoons in the park are not afraid of humans and will come right up to you . anyway, we came up with a brilliant idea to catch one one a flyrod. we stripped the hair of a big streamer and wrapped a piece of bacon around it and dangled it in front of the raccoon. on the 2nd or 3rd try my friend Bruce jerked back and the hook stuck in its hand. it definately didn't go the way we thought it would. to see my friend run around in circles trying to stay away from a snapping **** was funny at the time but, 19 years later I have to tell my son these stories about what not to do. everyone knows that teenagers are very bright.
