Fishing in a Cemetery.... Sort of?

Have you ever fished in a cemetery, thought not? Well, I have, sort of. It all started last weekend when my wife and I traveled to Huntsville Alabama for a little family history genealogy. We ended up in a very large cemetery searching for my great-grandmother's grave site. Luckily, the cemetery provided a map which showed which section the grave was located. Me knowing maps, I thought finding this grave will be a piece of cake, wrong! After going back and forth over the entire cemetery, I realized that I was struggling to find the grave. I stopped to get my bearing and noticed a rainbow trout..... on a headstone. It was almost as if I was fishing. I just had to walk over and investigate. Here is what I discovered:  

The inscription on the headstone was very interesting. My first thought after reading this --now that's a true fisherman! Apparently, this guy must have had some great fishing trips and caught some beautiful fish. I bet that this guy would have had some interesting story's and would have been a joy to talk too. I hope that he was judged to be big enough to keep! 

Paddle over to my website, I paint beautiful lake, river and bay decor maps. Folks are discovering that these decor maps are wonderfully unique gifts that become family heirlooms. Oh yeah, I hide things in the lake waters, such as a tiny mermaid/fish. Folks love to search for them. Also, you can personalize your lake map with a star where your lake house is located.  I call my maps, treasured maps because most folks have that special body of water that they treasure. My treasured maps make a great Christmas gifts for the fisherman, lake lover, or Lake house. Order soon to avoid the rush!
As you can see, my maps make a great gift.  Orders pick-up during the holiday's, so order soon. Click here for more information.
