Most Epic Story!
It has become obvious to Badger that there is some sort of unwritten universal rule that says we can't hold a "BREAK THIS ROD" contest without somebody getting injured. The first year, a contestant got attacked by wasps. Luckily, this year's injury was a lot less serious - although the angler insists that they were locked in mortal combat with a 16 ft Hammerhead shark when the incident occurred!
"We hadn’t been fishing long when I looked over to see what he was up to and just as I did he leaned over the edge a little too far and went in. The first picture right after that happened. I called my wife to see if she would bring him a dry change of clothes because he was cold and soaked but refused to leave. She obliged and brought the clothes. We got him dried off and changed into a fresh set and were back to fishing no time. It hadn’t been 10 minutes when I turned to him again and I’ll be danged if he didn’t do the exact same thing!"
