How on earth this catfish half-swallowed a basketball I do not know. Perhaps he was on his way to the Lakers/Celtics series.
This supposedly occurred somewhere in a lake north of Houston, so I am betting that my sister got this from our Texas resident cousin.
A boater got the fish close to his boat and stabbed the air out of the ball so it could be removed.
And I was almost ready to tie a basketball dry fly.
