At this point he slowly reached down and pulled up his fishing rod. With a sad, sad tone in his voice he said "It broke!" "I was casting and it hooked the dinghy, and as I cast it just broke." "I didn't mean to." "Can we fix it?" "I'll get the tape." He continued on with the problem solving trying to make it all better. Trying to explain that it just wouldn't work that way I decided to go to the stern and get one of my rods for him. As I detached the reel and began to attach his he still morned. He wanted a rod just like the one that broke. Mine wouldn't do. So now we will set aside a couple of the proceeds from his conch shells to buy him a new rod. After all you can't be the Fisher King without catching fish with your own special rod.
Sad, Sad Little Fisher King
Bye, Bye old friend
The damage is done
If anyone out there has enjoyed his adventure please email us about buying a conch shell to replace his rod. It is now number one on the list!
