Find some great fishing under a bright light

By Larry Dablemont

I went fishing at Norfork Lake last week and really bombed out. An outdoor writer is also prone to tell about the fishing trips that go very well and not write much about the times he makes a thousand casts and reels back empty hooks or lures. If you had been with me on Norfork last week you would have caught more fish than I did if you had only caught one.
