  1. Troy, didn’t know if “huntin alligator” from Amos Moses qualified under the fishing guidelines. Really enjoying the lyrics/blogs. Keep up the great work. K.O.

    1. While Amos Moses did not make the list, I suspect that he did some fishing in the swamp when not knocking alligators on the head with a stump. Appreciate the comment and always good to know that someone reads these rambles.
