Special Report - WFF Smackdown Bout #1
Good morning, fans of the World Fishing Federation! Today is the day that we open up our series for Bout #1 between Great Egret and Great Blue Heron, the two top fishermen in their classes. Great Egret weighs in at 2.2 pounds with a 54-inch wingspan and Great Blue Heron outweighs him at a lean and mean 5.5 pounds with an 80-inch wingspan. Both birds are looking good and may the best one win today’s first competition of 2012.
Great Blue Heron is Up First
Great Blue Heron is out in the water with a serious cast in his eye and holds great hopes for the future, along with forthcoming generations. As long as the water stays clear of hooks, loose fishing line, and general trash, there is a good chance that the species will proliferate. He wanders near the first jetty then moves to the southerly area with a couple of strikes, but nothing as of yet. He made several good tries and was very intent on the water. There were a few fish around, as they jumped out of the water, but not around him, which necessitated his movement.
Fans, Weather, and the Crowd
A few of our fans arrived on their own power today and parking seems to be aplenty. The weather is overcast with a cool breeze, and there is a small general hope of rain. Yes, a very small hope, perhaps in the neighborhood of 20%. The lake is quiet with very few humans out in the area, and none were invited to this event as special guests.
Our Sponsors Say...
And now a word from our generous sponsors. Do you have goose poop in your yard? Tired of stepping in it? Well, in that case, build yourself a light-colored concrete sidewalk, and it will be easier for you to see it, navigate around it, and therefore, not step in the vegetable matter.
The Great Egret's Turn
Back to our sporting event. This event is brought to you by the WFF, World Fishing Federation, Bout #1 between Great Egret and Great Blue Heron. All right fans, we now have Great Egret out on the water, a shining example of his class. He is now calmly strutting the same general vicinity that Great Blue Heron was. He appears confident, calm, cool and collected. When we interviewed him earlier, he wanted to pass on to the human fisherman not to empty their bilge pumps in the water, as that allows boat fuel to escape into the water. This is detrimental to the lives of water birds, who rely on water to make their habitat safe and clean for both adults and young birds.
Great Egret has captured himself a fish, though a tiny one. It looks like he is the winner of this particular round today. Remember, everyone, that fish can be obtained on both the shoreline as well as in deeper waters, so it is important for trash not to be left on the water’s edge, for it will make itself into the water very easily. Properly dispose of sharp objects, fishing line and hooks, as they will choke, cut, or impale a delicate body or eyes.
Our contestants are on their way to other places, and we thank you for your attendance today. There are high hopes that you were entertained by this event, and we hope to see you at the next one.
