|Jervis Bay Snippets - The Blue Mountain Star Saturday 26 October 1929,|
Messrs, B.G. Lambert, Jim Murphy and Bernie Neenan were on a fishing trip to
Bernie makes no claims to be another George Washington, but when he tells you a story earnestly you may safely accept it.
One morning Bernie had hooked a nice red bream and was pulling him in, when a swift swimming barracuda swallowed the bream.
Bernie went on hauling, when suddenly from the depths a blunt, nosed monster swallowed the barracuda, and Bernie had nothing to haul.
The shark had the bream, the baracuda, as well as the lead and hooks.
Bernie's face was a study, but with resignation in his voice he said;-
"What do you think of that boys? I think I'd like to have a beer."
He had it.
