Every once in a while, we have all had a fish story to pass on to anyone that would listen.
This fisherman will have a story to end all fishing stories, I'm thinking! See what you think about it!
Angler fishes out Minnesota woman's prosthetic leg

ALEXANDRIA, Minn. (AP) — A woman who lost her prosthetic leg while swimming in a western Minnesota lake three years ago has been reunited with the limb thanks to an angler.
Beth Krohn was fishing last month on Lake Ida in Alexandria. She says her line kept snagging on something, and that she hoped it wasn't a dead body.
A KSAX-TV report (http://bit.ly/q1jrRF ) says her catch turned out to be a prosthetic leg belonging to Pam Riley of Morris.
Krohn returned the leg to Riley after tracking her down through a prosthetic limb manufacturer in Alexandria.
Krohn says she's proud of the catch, comparing it to going deer hunting and shooting the biggest buck.
Riley says she always wondered what someone would think if they saw a leg surfacing in a lake.
Yep, I'll just bet that's the strangest thing that lady ever caught! Does my heart good in a way to hear a story like this for a change.
Besides, it's Saturday and talking about fishing on the weekend is always good! Don't you think?
Coffee on the patio this morning! We can swap some fishing tales!
